The F5 Kubernetes BIG-IP Controller configures BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager (LTM) objects for applications in the Kubernetes Atomic Cluster (KAC), serving North-South traffic.
The F5 Application Services Proxy (ASP) provides load balancing and telemetry for containerized applications, serving East-West traffic.
Let's Encrypt digital certificates are automatically installed on Virtual Servers on the Big-IP LTM.

ELO: Kubernetes Atomic Cluster (KAC)
The containerized Kubernetes master, etcd, the worker nodes, and the Traefik Ingress Controller (or
) or the optional F5 Kubernetes Big-IP Controller are all running on CentOS 7 Atomic virtual machines (VM) on KVM hosts.
Digital Certificates are automatically installed and renewed for any Internet-exposed services using the Let's Encrypt (LE) ACME Protocol.
Rapidly deploy Helm Charts to the Kubernetes Atomic Cluster, to bring up an application with dynamically-provisioned storage, with a few clicks.
Review the KAC Roadmap for updates.
Traefik (pronounced like traffic) is a modern HTTP reverse proxy and load balancer made to ease the deployment of production-ready microservices. It supports several backends like Docker, Swarm, and Kubernetes to manage its configuration automatically and dynamically.
Traefik listens to the Kubernetes orchestration API, and knows each time an exposed microservice is added, removed, killed or upgraded, and will generate its configuration automatically. Routes to KAC services will be created instantly.
Hyper-Converged GlusterFS Cluster
Heketi provides a RESTful management interface which can be used to manage the life cycle of GlusterFS volumes. With Heketi, cloud services like OpenStack, Kubernetes, and OpenShift Origin can dynamically provision GlusterFS volumes with any of the supported durability types. Heketi will automatically determine the location for bricks across the cluster, making sure to place bricks and its replicas across different failure domains. Heketi also supports any number of GlusterFS clusters, allowing cloud services to provide network file storage without being limited to a single GlusterFS cluster.
