Form3: Prepare for the multi-cloud with Cilium on Kubernetes

In this video, Kevin Holditch from Form3 explains how they built a cloud agnostic, multi-cloud environment on Kubernetes with Cilium while complying to the high standards of the payment processing industry.

When you are working with the big tier 1 banks and have to go multi-cloud, you need something reliable, that offers all necessary features, and that is also good to maintain. For developers, the result should feel the same, no matter what cloud runs underneath. Form3 went with Kubernetes, an obvious choice – and they chose Cilium as a common CNI to connect the clusters and manage the network. The inbuilt observability via Hubble was used to aid troubleshooting and monitor the traffic flow.

Tune in to learn from Kevin how Isovalent Enterprise for Cilium enabled Form3 to build a multi-cloud platform, run it across on-premises and public cloud, and maintain reliability and performance while doing so. You will learn:

  • … how Cilium network policies can be key in such a project.
  • … how Cilium helps to avoid the need to deploy an additional service mesh with side cars.
  • … how simple maintenance becomes with Cilium, when one site can just be taken down easily.
  • … what great help Hubble is when you have to debug cross-cloud networking problems.
  • … how easy it is to encrypt the network traffic with transparent encryption via IPSEC to fulfil compliance and security rules. After all, we are talking about a lot of money here! ????

Getting Started with Cilium

Cilium is an open source software for transparently securing the network connectivity between application services deployed using Linux container management platforms like Docker and Kubernetes. At the foundation of Cilium is a new Linux kernel technology called eBPF, which enables the dynamic insertion of powerful security visibility and control logic within Linux itself. Because eBPF runs inside the Linux kernel, Cilium security policies can be applied and updated without any changes to the application code or container configuration. In this interactive, hands-on lab we provide you a fully fledged Cilium installation on a small cluster and a few challenges to solve. See for yourself how Cilium works and how it can help you by securing a moon-sized battlestation in a “Star Wars”-inspired challenge.
