Traefik is a modern HTTP reverse proxy and load balancer that makes deploying microservices easy. Traefik integrates with your existing infrastructure components such as Docker, Swarm mode, Kubernetes, Marathon, Consul, etcd, Rancher, and Amazon ECS. It configures itself automatically and dynamically.
