Flexible, Extensible, Bare-Metal Cloud-Native Load-Balancer
eBPF based cloud-native load-balancer for Edge
What is LoxiLB ?
LoxiLB is a fully open-source cloud-native "external" service load-balancer for cloud-native edge workloads written from scratch using eBPF as its core-engine and based on Go Language.
LoxiLB turns Kubernetes network load balancing into high speed, flexible and programmable LB services. It automates the tasks of external load balancer administration: deployment, bootstrapping, configuration, provisioning, scaling, upgrading, migration, routing, monitoring, and resource management. Although, it is primarily designed to support bare-metal on-premise and edge cluster deployments, it should run equally well in any cloud environment.
LoxiLB utilizes the flexibility of the Kubernetes platform to deliver its services via a Kubernetes Operator for each on-prem cloud (k8s CCM) provider
Purpose built eBPF based data-plane engine
Designed for high-perf & scalability
Built from ground up to operate as a CNF
Supports K8s CCM and CNI interfaces
Easily export your cloud-native k8s micro- services with goBGP
Natively supports and integrates with MEC/OpenRAN environments
Support for SRv6 , SCTP, GTP (ext) etc
