The upstream object represents a virtual hostname and can be used to loadbalance incoming requests over multiple services (targets). For example, an upstream with the name
service.v1.xyz loadbalances requests for a Service object whose host is service.v1.xyz. Requests for this Service would be proxied to the targets defined within the upstream.
Add Upstreams by using the

You can modify the details of an Upstream by clicking the
DETAILS button next to its name.
