F5 BIG-IP Container Ingress Services (CIS) lets you manage your F5 BIG-IP device from Kubernetes or OpenShift using either environment’s native CLI/API. CIS is a cloud-native connector that can use either Kubernetes or OpenShift as a BIG-IP orchestration platform. CIS watches the Kubernetes API for specially formatted resources and updates the BIG-IP system configuration accordingly.
CIS installation is based on the resources (for example: ConfigMap, Ingress, Routes, and CRD) used by the customer to expose the Kubernetes services.
RedHat OpenShift is the Kubernetes platform that provides a foundation for on-premises, hybrid, and multi-cloud deployments.
