Deploy your first applicationΒΆ

In this guide we are going to deploy a simple application: cheese-deployent. This deployment defines 3 services with a 2 replication factor. Traefik will load balance the requests among the replicas in the Kubernetes nodes. For more details about the cheese deployment, please refer to: https://docs.traefik.io/user-guide/kubernetes.

Start by substituting domain_name with yourdomain.com in cheese-deployent.yml (where yourdomain.com is the domain that points to the edge nodes, through CloudFlare):

sed -i -e 's/domain_name/yourdomain.com/g' examples/cheese-deployment.yml

Now, copy the cheese-deployent.yml file into the master node:

ansible master -m copy -a "src=examples/cheese-deployment.yml dest=/home/ubuntu"

Finally, deploy the application using kubectl:

ansible master -a "kubectl apply -f /home/ubuntu/cheese-deployment.yml"

If everything goes well you should see some front-ends and back-ends showing up in the Traefik UI, and you should be able to access the services at:
