How Can Kubernetes Allow for Traffic to Non-Kubernetes Resources?

Problem scenario
You have a Kubernetes cluster, and you need some applications to access external websites. How do you do this?

Use an Ambassador. It is a sidecar that is designed to reach services (e.g., URLs or sockets) outside the Kubernetes cluster. If the external IP address changes, you just need to change it in the Ambassador containers. A convenient single-source of truth is maintainable.
