Acnodal launches today PureLB, an open-source Kubernetes Service Load Balancer orchestrator.

FREMONT, CA: Acnodal has released PureLB, and it is an open-source Kubernetes Service Load Balancer orchestrator. PureLB boosts the deployment of hybrid cloud production applications by easing and streamlining how the applications are accessed outside of the cluster.

"During 2018 and 2019, we built a large scale private cloud system for a European auto manufacturer, we were surprised that there were no robust, simple and scalable Service Load Balancer solutions available," says Adam Dunstan, co-founder Acnodal. "The public cloud providers' solutions are tied to their Cloud, so we started Acnodal to provide a solution for Hybrid Clouds."

PureLB is a Service Load Balancer for the Kubernetes. A LoadBalancer is a Service type that provides the external network components' configuration to allow external network access to the specified application resource. Service Load Balancers are a vital component in the K8s developer workflow. They allow the configuration of the resources that are used to enable access to the applications to be pre-configured so that they can be accessed on demand by developers via the service definition. This simple operation can be undertaken on-demand or as part of continuous integration without custom configuration or tooling.

As an open-source project, the maintainers welcome contributions from the Kubernetes community.

Acnodal, a Cloud Native Network infrastructure developer, unlocks the potential of Cloud Native technology in a Hybrid and Private Cloud deployments. Acnodal was established in 2020 by experts in large scale infrastructure development and deployment.
