    Redis Enterprise for Kubernetes supports several ways to route external traffic to your RedisEnterpriseCluster: Ingress controllers HAProxy and NGINX require an ingress API resource. Istio requires Gateway and VirtualService API resources. OpenShift uses routes to route external traffic. The RedisEnterpriseActiveActiveDatabase (REAADB) requires any of the above routing methods to be configured in the RedisEnterpriseCluster (REC) with the ingressOrRouteSpec field. External routing using Redis Enterprise for Kubernetes Every time a RedisEnterpriseDatabase (REDB), Redis Enterprise Active-Active database (REAADB), or Redis Enterprise cluster (REC) is created, the Redis Enterprise operator automatically creates a service to allow requests to be routed to that resource.
