Introducing TraefikProxy — a scalable and highly available proxy for JupyterHub

/ March 6, 2019

Georgiana Dolocan  |  Jupyter Blog In the JupyterHub context, the proxy is the unit in charge of directing the user requests to their notebook servers.

The routing table must be continuously updated as users start and stop their servers without disrupting the requests being processed. The following drawing illustrates the proxy functionality in a JupyterHub deployment.
