Calico is an open source networking and network security solution for containers, virtual machines, and native host-based workloads. Calico supports a broad range of platforms including Kubernetes, OpenShift, Docker EE, OpenStack®, and bare metal services.
Calico combines flexible networking capabilities with run-anywhere security enforcement to provide a solution with native Linux® kernel performance and true cloud-native scalability. Calico provides developers and cluster operators with a consistent experience and set of capabilities whether running in public cloud or on-prem, on a single node or across a multi-thousand node cluster.
Calico and OpenShift help create network policies for a cluster. With Kubernetes network policies, you can specify the network traffic that you want to allow or block to and from a pod within a cluster. To set more advanced network policies such as blocking inbound (ingress) traffic to network load balancer (NLB) services, use Calico network policies.
Calico provides solutions for advanced pod connectivity use cases required in the real world:
- Zone-based architectures and selective addressing to namespaces or pods
- Allows advanced network configurations leveraging standard approaches used in the internet (and loved by network engineers)
- Scales easily from small clusters to very large configurations
- Calico provides operational simplicity by automating most controls under the covers, but giving advanced cluster operators the ability to tune if necessary
This webinar will focus on Calico networking overview on OpenShift. The agenda for the webinar will be as follows:
- Introduction to Calico networking
- Why Calico?
- Calico architecture
- Calico data paths
- Use cases
