High performance ingress controller for Kubernetes
Contour is an open source Kubernetes ingress controller providing the control plane for the Envoy edge and service proxy. Contour supports dynamic configuration updates and multi-team ingress delegation out of the box while maintaining a lightweight profile.
Built for Kubernetes
Quickly deploy cloud-native applications using the flexible and innovative HTTPProxy API.
Update Envoy configurations as the ingress and underlying elements change, without restarting the load balancer.
Secure Ingress Delegation
Safely delegate ingress configuration to protect service access on multi-team Kubernetes clusters.
Contour is a Cloud Native Computing Foundation Incubating project
