Network management (and virtual network in particular) is hard. Cloud app developers find themselves dealing with too many options and too many settings, which make no sense. This is because Cloud APIs evolved from legacy IT management.
Cloud-Native apps are revolutionizing how software is developed and deployed.
Why do app developers need to deal with those legacy network knobs and gauges?
Why do we even need to care about IP addresses, routers, or load balancers, in a cloud-native world?
In this presentation, we will explore some alternative approach and how we could go about implementing it *today* with K8S and Dragonflow (an open source virtual network management project), to provide a more stable, better performing and truly scalable cloud-native infrastructure.
