    "Simple to Use, Helpful docs"

    What do you like best?

    Best part about traefik is its easy to use documentation. For the most of things to discover from , docs were really helpful. Most of the time, to use traefik its configuration is defined in different formats like YAML, toml etc. Also, as of today i am using traefik as an ingress controller and it is performing well for my production builds also.

    What do you dislike?

    Dislike not so directly, but yes , initially it was difficult to shift from version 1.6 to 2. As that it was a big change in how traefik performs. Also, if traefik can give functionality to password protect traefik admin ports 8080 and 80.

    Recommendations to others considering the product:

    Use it, just read docs and go.

    What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

    As of today, i am using Traefik as an ingress controller in my production deployments. I use it to route incoming requests from different sources to different services. By end of march, i target to use its security features like auth modules.

    "Traefik ias Amazing Product For Containerized Environment"

    What do you like best?

    The best part is its configuration is simple and it discover backend services on dynamic way without restart. We have deployed this Product in MCE/Multi client environment to discover backend services.

    What do you dislike?

    It's pretty complicated to migrate from traefik 1.x to 2.x version because not any proper document available on official site. There is not any log rotation inbuilt feature available in traefik

    What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

    We had lots of service running inside the MCE Environment. Its pretty helpful to us to achieve multiple task with single product without integrating different product for different task.

    "The best opensource reverse proxy"

    What do you like best?

    Traefik is an awesome reverse proxy that works seamlessly with various orchestration backends (e.g Kubernetes, Docker, Docker Swarm, Amazon ECS, among others) rewriting HTTP configuration when services are deployed, stopped or replicated. One of the things I like most about traefik is the fact that it integrates with letsencrypt to provide free HTTPS. Once configured, any domains you use will automatically get issued an SSL certificate from letsencrypt. Traefik will also automatically renew your certificate.

    What do you dislike?

    Traefik doesn't suppport websockets or other TCP protocols (other than HTTP). Traefik was also hard to set up the first time. The documentation great but could probably be improved.

    Recommendations to others considering the product:

    There aren't many reverse proxies that work seamless with a wide range of container orchestration tools the way traefik does. In my humble opinion Traefik has the widest range of features compared to products in it's category. Best of all, it's free.

    What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

    We use traefik as a reverse proxy and load balancer for all our web services

    "If you are running micro services for your solution Traefik is the best option available as of now"

    What do you like best?

    Super Easy to use, Awesome documentation, Integrated SSl solution provided by Let's Encrypt, the most I like about this is it's routing mechanism without any additional configuration.

    What do you dislike?

    As I am using traefic for last more than one year overall I am satisfied but just one thing I always think that they should provide documentation (a batter one) about how to configure as It takes too much time to figure out by .toml file which is all try and catch.

    Recommendations to others considering the product:

    If You are deploying microservices very often, traefic is the best option available as of now

    What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

    while I was using Nginx and IIS it was really hard to manage frontend and backend services and their respective networking traefik did a real good job there.

    "Great out-of-the-box cloud reverse proxy; config can be sticky"

    What do you like best?

    I love that Traefik solves a problem that, in the past, I had to wire up myself. Moving to a Kubernetes-based workflow for our CI/CD and production environments meant juggling ingress and TLS certificates was tricky; Traefik is a real time saver.

    What do you dislike?

    Configuring Traefik isn't entirely intuitive, especially if you're using a key-value store. The documentation is technically correct however users without experience with Consul or etcd may get stuck on certain concepts. The configuration does not, as far as I can tell, hot-reload in all contexts so you just need to test as you go.

    What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

    My clients love that they don't have to pay for TLS certificates, because Traefik integrates natively with Let's Encrypt. It also helps address questions of distributed/fault tolerant ingress in K8s.
