In this section, you can learn about Ingress-based TCP/HTTP/HTTPS services you can deploy on Tanzu Kubernetes Grid clusters.

Ingress services expose TCP/HTTP/HTTPS routes from outside the cluster to services within the cluster. Traffic routing is controlled by rules defined on the Ingress resource. For more information on Ingress, refer to the Kubernetes website.

Tanzu Kubernetes Grid clusters has a Kubernetes Cloud Provider for VMware Cloud Director preinstalled. This feature allows you to deploy Ingress services for modern applications. In this process, it might be necessary to upload the associated certificates with a particular naming convention. For more information, see Creation of a LoadBalancer using a Third-Party Ingress.
