What are your plans for the Equinix Metal Load Balancer service?

Equinix Employee

Tyler Auerbeck introduced us to the new Load Balancer (EMLB) service during his Equinix Demo Day Winter 2023 session, https://deploy.equinix.com/events/demo-day-2/.

Now that all Equinix Metal users have access to this feature through the console and API, what are you planning to do with it?

The service is documented at https://deploy.equinix.com/developers/docs/metal/networking/load-balancers/.

One of the first integrations to be released is the Cloud Provider Equinix Metal (CPEM) support for managing Kubernetes Service resources with the LoadBalancer type.  The integration will provision EMLB load balancers and pools and configure ports to map to the Kubernetes nodes and ports where the service is available. The dozens of API calls all happen automatically when CPEM is used in a Kubernetes cluster running on Equinix Metal! The CPEM docs for using this integration are in the project README: https://github.com/kubernetes-sigs/cloud-provider-equinix-metal#service-load-balancers.

More API documentation is available at: https://github.com/equinix/lbaas-api-docs
