The AWS ALB ingress controller project is now generally available in version 1.0.0 and supported with Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (EKS). This project allows you to use the Elastic Load Balancing Application Load Balancer (ALB) with your Kubernetes cluster managed by Amazon EKS.

Kubernetes allows you to configure an ingress controller in order to route traffic to containers, a management resource that authorizes external traffic to be routed within the Kubernetes application. Previously, support for the ALB ingress controller was a community driven effort that wasn't formally supported by AWS.

Now, the AWS ALB ingress controller is formally maintained and supported by AWS and is in production use by multiple customers. You can use the ingress controller with Amazon EKS or any Kubernetes cluster running on AWS.

Please visit the AWS region table to see all AWS regions where Amazon EKS is available.
