Implementing Kubernetes is not technically difficult, but the networking layer continues to confuse and cause implementation problems for those new to Kubernetes. Not everyone is capable of using GKE and may need to implement Kubernetes in an on-prem facility. Certainly there is a wealth of online documentation to assist new users but some of this documentation is contradictory due when the documentation was written and the multitude of network stacks available.

This presentation attempts to provide clarity for new implementers and those wishing to understand Kubernetes networking better. The content covers how networking is accomplished in the Kubernetes environment and the reasons why it is implemented differently than traditional network environments. In addition, several of the popular network stacks will be reviewed to provide attendees with knowledge to make a better informed decision when choosing between network stacks.
