Meet us in Paris to network and learn together with your local Cilium community

Isovalent has joined forces with SFEIR to organize a half-day workshops, where we will dive into presentations, demos, and hands-on labs around Cilium and Cilium Service Mesh.

After the hard work is over, we’ll gather the local Cilium community for a meetup with plenty of drinks and bites to conclude the day on a high note and get to know each other.

    Cilium – eBPF Powered Networking, Security & Observability

    Cilium is the next generation, eBPF powered open-source Cloud Native Networking solution, providing security, observability, scalability, and superior performance. Cilium has joined the CNCF as an incubating project.

    In this session, you’ll discover how Cilium with eBPF provides superior performance while providing identity and application aware security and visibility for your Cloud-Native Workloads. Learn how you can leverage Cilium Cluster Mesh for providing connectivity for load-balancing, observability and security between nodes across multiple clusters, enabling simple, high-performance cross-cluster connectivity. And finally, learn how eBPF streamlines Service Mesh implementations while eliminating the sidecar problem.

    Lab 1: Getting started with Cilium

    In this lab, we provide you a fully fledged Cilium installation on a small cluster, together with a few challenges to solve. See yourself how Cilium works, and how it can help you secure your moon-sized battlestation in a “Star Wars”-inspired challenge.

    Lab 2: Cilium Service Mesh

    Cilium Service Mesh features eBPF-powered connectivity, traffic management, security and observability. In this lab, you will learn how you can use Cilium to deploy Ingress, as well as EnvoyConfig resources to dynamically configure the Envoy proxy provided with the Cilium agent. And all of the above without any Envoy sidecar injection into your pods!
