Getting Started with Traefik Cloud Native Edge Router

OK, so maybe you have heard about the term Traefik, Edge Router, or Reverse Proxy/load balancing. Let's take this a bit further so you can fully understand what is Traefik, the benefits, and a high-level overview.

To help demystify Traefik and some of the buzzwords surrounding Cloud Native Edge Routers we created a Getting Started with Traefik Video.

This video is about how to get started using Traefik. We cover a background about Traefik, the architecture, and configuration. Next, we do a demo of Traefik load balancing our Cat Gif application with Let's Encrypt, and Basic Authentication. We also added custom error pages to show nice 400 errors instead of boring error pages.

 Agenda of the Video

  • Background Traefik
  • Demo
  • Lab
