Announcing General Availability of Traefik Enterprise Edition

Traefik Made Distributed

Containous Inc, the company behind the popular open source cloud native edge router, Traefik, is proud to announce the general availability of Traefik Enterprise Edition, a new platform built on top of Traefik, designed for business-critical deployments.

In just three years, Traefik, the Cloud Native Edge Router, has become a key player in microservices infrastructures. With more than 21,000 stars on Github and 650,000,000 downloads on DockerHub, Traefik is widely used by major companies in their production environments.

In the latter part of 2018, Containous released the early access of TraefikEE to a select group of users, allowing them to refine the software. Today, Containous is proud to announce that TraefikEE has reached the 1.0 milestone, and is ready for production.

Overview

TraefikEE is built on top of Traefik and adds clustering features to satisfy the needs of enterprise customers. All Traefik concepts apply to TraefikEE, so if you’re already a Traefik user, you’re in familiar territory.

It runs on the edge of your platform to route the traffic to your applications, and is composed of two elements:

  • The data plane: horizontally scalable nodes, which forwards ingress traffic to your services
  • The control plane: distributed nodes, implementing the raft consensus, which watch your platform and its services, store topology changes, and reconfigure the data plane to adapt ingress routing dynamically

A TraefikEE cluster natively supports raft consensus between control nodes to safely store and replicate configurations. No external Key-Value Store nor third-party tool needed.

This distributed architecture is the cornerstone of TraefikEE’s strengths: natively highly available, scalable and secure.
