Overview: Brian and Tyler talk with Marc Curry (@redhatmarc, OpenShift Principal Product Manager, Container Infrastructure) about the basics of Kubernetes networking, CNI plugins, managing Network Policy, granular ingress and egress routing, and how CaaS/PaaS and IaaS are being integrated.
- Kubernetes Network Plugins
- Kubernetes Cluster Networking
- Kubernetes Network Policy
- Kubernetes Ingress
- Kubernetes Container Network Interface (CNI)
Topic 1 – Welcome to the show. Tell us about your background and some of the areas you focus on now?
Topic 2 – Let’s talk about the basics of Kubernetes networking. Walk us through the core elements from container addressing, pod/cluster networking, and things like ingress/egress routing (direct or through proxies).
Topic 3 – Kubernetes has a standard called “CNI” (Container Networking Interface). What does this do, and how does it interact with various SDN projects/products?
Topic 4 – A recent enhancement to Kubernetes was “Network Policy”. What does this provide, and where does it overlap with some commercial SDN capabilities?
Topic 5 – Let’s talk about inbound and outbound routing of traffic. What are some of the biggest issues that people need to take into consideration (proxies, traffic sources, protocols supported, etc.)?
Topic 6 – What are some of the things you’re working on to bridge the networking between CaaS/PaaS layers and IaaS layers?
