Feedback form is now closed.
Note: LIVE panel. The Cloud Native networking landscape is particularly frightening. With the advent of service mesh and containers being deployed in the tens of thousands, L4/L7 load balancing, plus networking implementations for each public cloud being different, it's important for application developers and devops audiences to understand the nuances of Cloud Native networking.

The panelists, all cloud native networking experts including the Kubernetes Networking SIG chair, etc. will go into some of the fundamental design challenges and address some advanced scalability issues. We will include select questions from the audience as well.

This panel, intended for application developers and devops audience will look at the Cloud Native networking ecosystem, past present and future. Attendees will walk away with a better understanding of the challenges of some of the tools for the trade and how to best implement Cloud Native networking best practices.
