Exposing Mesh Gateway in kubernetes


So we are running a kubernetes cluster on prem and dont have the ability to use LoadBalancer services. We want to use mesh gateways, I just want to find out if NodePort services are our only choice to expose the mesh gateway pods, since we cant use a LoadBalancer service?

Is it somehow possible to use a kubernetes ingress to expose the mesh gateway pods?

Hey @zane007bloom,

Yes, using a NodePort service is the way to go.

Mesh gateway is an edge proxy, and you can kind of think of it as a type of an ingress controller in a way and use similar mechanisms to expose it, depending on your network and org requirements.

Hope this makes sense!

Hi @ishustava,

Cool thanks, yeah that makes sense!
