How do we build a self-service platform that allows developers self-service of network configuration beyond what we can do with the familiar Ingress and service mesh resources? The increased adoption of GitOps and cloud-native ways of deploying applications increase our need to configure network features that are external to Kubernetes such as multi-cluster and multi cloud/region support but also adaptive traffic filtering, DoS protection etc. However, the possibilities with a Kubernetes API driven approach are limited. This forces developers into the Terraform domain and alternative workflows, which increases cognitive load. In this talk TV 2 Denmark will share their experience building a Kubernetes API-driven self-service platform for managing cloud network infrastructure. The platform builds on a Kubernetes controller-of-controllers that implements the Gateway API and realizes network infrastructure through cloud-provider agnostic integrations using Crossplane and Istio.
