Load Balancer Support

DigitalOcean Load Balancers are a fully-managed, highly available network load balancing service. Load balancers distribute traffic to groups of Droplets, which decouples the overall health of a backend service from the health of a single server to ensure that your services stay online.


You can configure load balancers that are provisioned by DOKS using Kubernetes service annotations .
Kubernetes service ’externaltrafficpolicy’ field controls how nodes respond to health checks.
