About this event

This event is brought to you in collaboration with the Switzerland and Austria C2C team leaders.

Google chose Cilium as the native network layer for Google Kubernetes Engine to increase security and visibility for containers. At this event, a high-level overview, you will learn about Cilium’s architecture, what problems it solves, and what a modern customer cloud journey looks like.

Enterprises are rapidly adopting cloud-native technologies to support the rollout of business applications. Unfortunately, they quickly realize that legacy approaches that rely on IPs and ports as their main notion of identity are useless in the highly dynamic world of Kubernetes. eBPF, a technology used to run programs in the Linux Kernel safely, promises to fundamentally change cloud-native networking. Cilium uses a new and powerful Linux kernel technology, eBPF, to provide high-performance and cloud-native-aware networking, observability, and security. Cilium’s unique capabilities enable Kubernetes architects to solve many challenges they commonly face as Kubernetes platforms mature.

This event will be held in English.
