Ingress Load Balancing
Ingress mode vs. host mode
Swarm supports two publishing modes that make services accessible outside of the cluster:
- Ingress mode (default)
- Host mode
Services published via ingress mode can be accessed from any node in the Swarm; even nodes not running a service replica. Services published via host mode can only be accessed by hitting nodes running service replicas. The figure below shows the difference between the two modes.
