Content details:

➡️ Approaching Cilium in a production grade Kubernetes cluster

🗣 Samuele Chiocca - Engineering Tech Lead @ SIGHUP


This talk will explore Cilium components that should be deployed in a standard on-premises Kubeadm cluster.

We will show a quick demo of Cilium in a production-grade cluster and explore the Hubble component and some of the custom Cilium Network Policy capabilities.

By retracing our journey to adopt Cilium as a package on the Kubernetes Fury Distribution Networking module, we will highlight some customisations we made by using upstream open-source components.

➡️ Connecting and Securing Clusters Across Clouds with Cilium Cluster Mesh and Service Mesh

🗣 Raymond de Jong - Field CTO EMEA @Isovalent

connectivity. Managing high-available cloud-native applications across multiple clusters and clouds can quickly become complex and time-consuming. However, Cilium Cluster Mesh and Service Mesh provide a streamlined and scalable solution to cross-cloud.

this session, you will learn how Cilium Cluster Mesh combined with Service Mesh provide a single networking, security, and observability solution for applications spanning multiple clusters and clouds. We will start by demonstrating how to configure clusters across clouds and optimize application traffic using Service Mesh and topology-aware routing.

You'll learn how to implement Ingress and Gateway API resources to provide percentage-based routing or canary rollouts to a new version of your application - even across clusters. Finally, we'll explain Multi-Cluster Cilium Network Policies for application security and how to observe service connectivity using Hubble. You'll leave the session with knowledge about the combined benefits of Cilium Cluster Mesh and Service Mesh for running applications across multiple clusters including applying Cilium Network Policies to secure applications independently of where they are located.
