The K8s community is heading fast towards adoption of using multiple clusters in each deployment for their workloads. A natural challenge that comes with this adoption is how to connect the workloads running on different clusters and even different clouds in a secure and automated fashion.
The challenges do not stop there, after connecting the workloads you would want to keep your network policy applicable across clouds so traffic that is ‘allowed’ to access your application could still access your application, even if it is deployed on a new cluster you created. And what about the service discovery mechanism? You need to be able to find services on other clusters without making them publicly available for any random hacker to crack.
In this session we’ll cover common use cases and review the available open source projects that addresses them. Specifically we’ll focus on ‘Submariner’, ‘Coastguard’ and ‘Lighthouse’. If you haven't heard about them yet you should !
