It’s easy to deploy a set of docker containers to DigitalOcean Kubernetes. It’s fairly easy to add an NGINX Ingress load balancer to make it visible to the outside world.
It’s not that easy at all to configure HTTPS certificates (kubectl, helm, lot of YAML files) and domains and making sure that the certificates get created - a lot of hassle.
I would gladly pay for a “managed” load balancer that would be just as easy to set up as in case of a DigitalOcean App or a Droplet:
In addition to the simplicity I also get CloudFlare’s security and CDN.
Is there anything similar to that available to Kubernetes on DigitalOcean?
