How to implement customer groups? #1793

Is it possible to implement customer groups with Ambassador?

Apps in the Kubernetes cluster are multi tenant. So http://customera-myapp.example uses a different database then http://customerb-myapp.example.

We would like to give the customers a bit more control on stability and introduce three groups "early-adopters", "early-majority" and "late-majority". The customers in these groups will get slightly different application versions.

Lets say I want a production cluster with three namespaces:

  • early-adopters
  • early-majority
  • late-majority

Would it be possible with Ambassador to match "customera" on some list and route to the service in the correct namespace?

I looked at host_regex, but that seems not to fit for this usecase. I know in HAProxy it's possible to lookup a value in a large list and then maybe add a custom header to the request so that once it reaches Ambassador regex_headers can be used. But I don't like introducing an additional HAProxy just for this in front of the cluster.

I also have to support Mutual TLS authentication, which probably further complicates the use of the HAProxy.
