What is Traefik?

Traefik is the modern standard for Routing, Load Balancing, and Proxies for the Cloud, On-Prem, and Hybrid workloads. It works with various backends such as Docker, Swarm, Kubernetes, Marathon, Mesos, Consul, Etcd, Zookeeper, BoltDB, Rest API, file… – to manage its configuration automatically and dynamically. It automatically inspects and configures microservice infrastructures.

Why Traefik is used for?

Traefik was introduced to resolve concerns related to the operation and management of large applications and systems. Interaction between services is a critical component of an application’s runtime behavior. Connection between services is an important component of the runtime behavior of an application and Traefik gives developers greater visibility and reliability, by providing them a layer of abstraction to control this communication. It can be very complicated to measure and diagnose application problems and failures without a dedicated layer of control and this is where Traefik help us.
