Container native load balancing in GKE

Last year I have talked about problems of load balancing traffic to Kubernetes cluster with auto-scaling. Since then Google has introduced new “container-native” load balancing, that theoretically addresses those issues. Lets do a deep-dive and practical analysis to verify if this new solution is as groundbreaking as promised.
