Support for OCI Network Load Balancers

Container Engine for Kubernetes now supports OCI network load balancers (NLBs). You can now define Kubernetes services that automatically provision NLBs. Provisioning an NLB for a Kubernetes service of type LoadBalancer enables you to:

  • Load-balance traffic among Kubernetes pods with high throughput and low latency.
  • Preserve source and destination IP addresses and ports.
  • Handle TCP and UDP traffic in the applications you deploy.
