Welcome to Traefik Enterprise Edition!

TraefikEE Architecture

TraefikEE (Traefik Enterprise Edition) runs on the edge of your platform to route the traffic to your applications.

By splitting responsibilities between two planes, TraefikEE follows the principle of "Separation of Concerns." To ensure that sensitive information only runs on a closed and safe environment, the control plane is not exposed to the outside. As a result, any malicious action from external traffic will stay stuck in the data plane and your platform will stay safe. Moreover, TraefikEE only relies on encrypted communications between nodes, to add an extra layer of security.

Smooth Operations

Installing and managing a raft based application is usually a painful experience. Since Traefik was made popular thanks to its usability and refreshing user experience, we have extended those benefits for you to TraefikEE.

TraefikEE comes with an additional CLI that manages to deploy and operate a cluster with several nodes in only one command line.

We hope you will love using traefikeectl (pronounced “traefikee-cuddle”), a time-saving tool.

Distributed Features

TraefikEE improves Traefik features by making them distributed throughout your cluster.

Distributed Rate Limiting

Centralize the rate limiting process of all of your data nodes, for services with standard rate limiting configuration, just like in Traefik.


TraefikEE's dashboard shows you all the relevant information about your cluster at a glance.

  • Visualize the nodes of your cluster, with their status:

Dashboard Cluster View

  • See the routing configuration of your TraefikEE cluster:

  • Analyze the routing metrics:

TraefikEE licenses come with built-in support: contact our team of engineers at support.containo.us.

This distributed architecture is the cornerstone of TraefikEE’s strengths: natively highly available, scalable, and secure.
