In a recent post, I detailed how to use Layer2 advertisements with MetalLB to simulate internal LoadBalancers for Kubernetes.
I wanted to see which modern browser was the fastest on my Mac laptop, but I don’t trust out of date benchmarks posted by CNET, and I run beta browsers with a bunch of plugins enabled…some of which can impact performance (like ad blockers).
Overall, Kubernetes is a stunningly extensible system - you can make it do almost anything you want.
In my previous post, I described the method I used with MetalLB to expose Kubernetes Services with LoadBalancer stype virtual IPs within my home lab.
I run a Kubernetes cluster at home because…..nerd reasons. I love to have a place to experiment with new things outside of my generously provided work labs (GCE and vSphere based).

No - I’m not leaving Dell 😊.
For those of you that don’t know, Reddit is a pretty major site on the internet. They bill themselves as the ‘front page of the Internet’, and they are #25 for traffic globally.
