Clusters Oblivion

  • Connecting Kubernetes clusters is a common technical requirement to address various use cases such as:
    • Shared Services Cluster
    • Load Balancing across multiple clusters for redundancy
    • Disaster Recovery requirement
  • But clusters were not designed to be connected! One cluster has no awareness of another’s Pods, Services and Network Policies!
  • Cluster sprawl quickly turn into a cluster nightmare and too many VPNs to manage.

Cluster Mesh

  • Provides an automatic service discovery and load balancing across meshed clusters
  • Cluster Mesh is Identify-Aware - enabling users to applies policies that span multiple clusters
  • Combined with Cilium Transparent Encryption, traffic can be encrypted within and across clusters
  • Reduced the need for multiple VPNs
  • Works on any platform, any cloud.

Cilium Cluster Mesh

  • Service Discovery across Clusters provides users the ability to load balance across clusters, addressing High Availability requirements.
  • Automatic discovery drastically simplifies cross-cluster operations
  • Network Policies can be applied to Services located in a different cluster, giving operators consistent network and security across clusters across clouds.

Lightning Talk: Connecting Klusters on the Edge with Deep Dive into Cilium Cluster Mesh

Edge computing can require connecting hundreds of clusters across disparate locations and infrastructures. Without a networking solution to manage this scale and complexity, you will just have a bunch of computers talking to themselves rather than each other and your customers. 

In this session, you’ll 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 at the edge. We’ll explore how Cluster Mesh allows endpoints in connected clusters to communicate while providing full security policy enforcement.

A Unique Technology

"What makes Cilium Cluster Mesh unique in our opinion is: Cross-cluster Service Discovery, Cross-cluster Service Load Balancing and Cross-Cluster Network Policies.
