Kernel-based Forwarding Plane for Network Service Mesh - Radoslav Dimitrov, VMware
Network Service Mesh is a novel approach solving complicated L2/L3 use cases in Kubernetes that are challenging to address with the existing networking model. The forwarding plane is one of the two key components of Network Service Mesh which makes this possible. This session will cover the implementation of a pure Kernel-based forwarding plane using the built-in network facilities such as netlink. By leveraging the Linux kernel networking, it makes it possible to enable a wide variety of network protocols that are not yet native in Kubernetes. This will ease the introduction of new use cases for cloud-native services allowing for more domains to benefit from the cloud-native technologies.

Lightning Talk: Cloud Native for Non-Coders - Bill Mulligan, Loodse GmbH
For developers, the benefits of a cloud native approach leveraging Kubernetes are quickly clear. However, these advantages are not as readily apparent to people who don’t code - yet those same people usually hold decision making and budgetary power. This talk seeks to explain the what, why, and business benefits of being cloud native without diving into code. Audience members will learn how to explain cloud native technologies to non-coders and give the business case for a cloud native approach at the organizational level.

Who says You Shouldn’t Run VMs and Containers Together? - Ian Jolliffe & Glenn Seiler, Wind River Systems
As momentum around the edge continues to grow there is a widely held thesis that you shouldn’t run VMs at the edge. But what about the VM-based applications that exist today? Converting every application to a container isn’t a viable solution for the near future. What is needed is an infrastructure platform that can support VMs and containers as equal citizens and provide the same level of services for both. The session will take a look at the evolution of VM/Container architectures that have been used to address the growing use of containers and then take look at the StarlingX project. StarlingX is a full featured cloud for the edge that uses Kubernetes to provision and manage cloud native applications and when needed OpenStack VMs. Other exciting technologies like Kubevirt, Kata containers and Virtlet will be discussed as solutions for making the ecosystem as flexible as possible.

Lightning Talk: Advancing CPU Management in Kubernetes - Levente Kálé, Nokia
While the majority of the K8s managed workloads are traditionally more forgiving towards frequent context switches, sharing CPU cores, over-provisioning, etc.; these are not the only applications which would like to leverage the features of a K8s infrastructure.

K8s resource management community tried to address this issue with the introduction of the CPU manager feature, but even the existing policies have unaddressed gaps.

The talk lists the requirements still missing from the core CPU Manager component, like the absence of sub-node level CPU pools, the true physical isolation of K8s and non-K8s managed processes, process-level CPU pinning, socket alignment, etc.

The talk then introduces an existing open-source component called CPU-Pooler and showcases how can all of these requirements satisfied today in a cloud-native, and future proof way.

Lightning Talk: Telemetry Aware Scheduling: Let the (Scheduling) Magic Unfold!! - Swati Sehgal, Intel Corporation
With containers becoming the desired deployment model for a wide range of workloads such as Big Data, IoT, storage, AI, ML, SDN and NFV solutions, Container orchestration tools like Kubernetes, need to evolve to meet stringent networking and resource management requirements. Service Level Objectives for many such workloads demand network I/O performance and capabilities beyond pure connectivity and reachability. Automated actions based on policies as well as predictive and reactive closed loops are becoming an indispensable requirement in the orchestration layer in order to achieve operational Efficiency, better Service performance, reduction in CapEx, OpEx and improved customer experience. This talk focuses on kubernetes scheduling capabilities enabling intelligent placement of workloads as well as for performing automated actions by using system telemetry obtained from Prometheus.

Large-scale Network Simulations in Kubernetes - Michael Kashin, Arista Networks
Virtual network simulation has been one of the best ways to test new designs before implementing them in production. There are plenty of tools that can help build arbitrary network topologies but most of them were designed to work on a single host.

Kubernetes presents an ideal platform to run large-scale network simulations, however its networking model, assuming a single interface per pod, is very limiting.

This presentation will examine the shortcomings of existing solutions, establish the desired requirements, provide an overview of a purpose-built CNI plugin (meshnet-cni) and demo how to build a 750-node network topology running open-source routing daemon (quagga/ospfd).

Connecting Kubernetes Clusters Across Clouds With Kilo - Lucas Servén Marín, Red Hat
In this talk, Lucas Servén presents a solution for creating Kubernetes clusters that span across cloud providers and regions: Kilo, a multi-cloud networking provider built on WireGuard. The talk considers the real-world issues motivating multi-cloud clusters, including: providing service geo-availability, building elastic clusters on-premises, and accessing hardware accelerators from other clouds. Lucas discusses how Kilo addresses these requirements and how its use of WireGuard solves additional cluster connectivity needs, such as deploying multi-cluster Kubernetes services, VPN-ing to clusters, and providing secured access to external services. Finally, the talk demonstrates the practice of running a multi-cluster service on heterogeneous infrastructure and considers some of the issues that arise when doing so.

Approaches for Plumbing Hardware Accelerated Interfaces to Containerized Network Functions - Thomas F. Herbert, Red Hat
There is strong interest in containerizing network functions to leverage the obvious advantages of containerization. Many network functions require user space access to layer 3 or layer 2 high speed interfaces and bandwidth hungry network functions need zero copy access to the hardware offload features provided in modern 40GB and faster NICs. In this talk, Mr. Herbert will describe and contrast open source methods to plumb hardware accelerated interfaces into a containerized network function. He will discuss zero-copy methods such as SR/IOV and vDPA (vHost Data Path Acceleration.) and how vDPA shows promise as a vendor independent interface. He will also discuss vHost-user, tcflower and AF_XDP data paths and control paths. Finally, he will discuss how containers running in orchestration systems such as Kubernetes can utilize these interfaces.

EVPN Networking between Kubernetes Containers and Openstack VMs - Vyshakh Krishnan, RtBrick & Faseela K., Ericsson
Hybrid cloud is becoming popular these days which has both VMs as well as light weight containers. But networking between them is always a challenge as the orchestrator is different.
Ethernet VPN (EVPN) is the most preferred and used overlay technology that provides L2 and L3 connectivity of virtual networks over a physical underlay in data center (DC) now.

This abstract's proposal is to use EVPN to provide L2/L3 connectivity between Kubernetes Containers and Openstack VMs using OpenDayLight (ODL) SDN Controller. Containers in one DC can talk to other containers/VMs in the same as well as physically separated DC over public network using EVPN.

Seamless Transition to CNFs with Tungsten Fabric - Magdalena Zaremba & Jaroslaw Lukow, Codilime
One of the key strengths of LF's Tungsten Fabric is its wide range of integrations and deployment scenarios. As a proven network backend for OpenStack, it powers some of the largest NFV clouds. Now, because it can support integration with Kubernetes as a CNI plugin, it is able to seamlessly incorporate Cloud Native Network Functions into existing environments. In this talk, speakers will focus on combining hardware-virtualized and containerized services, show the TF capabilities of container networking, mixed service chaining between OpenStack instances and K8s pods, and how this can be used to bring the incorporation of CNFs closer to reality - first in your lab and later in larger setups. The benefits of this approach include earlier/easier evaluation of new services and a broader set of services possible to deploy in your existing environment.

Pushing the Boundaries for Cloud-native Network Functions - Franck Baudin & Marc Curry, Red Hat
Independently of being hosted on virtual machines or containers, edge deployment for radio access networks (RAN) or mobile core networks (EPC, 5GC) components will require real time processing (RT),  NUMA awareness, programmable logic with FPGA, distributed computing nodes (DCN), and networking features such SR-IOV and OVS-DPDK.

Using such technologies, we will demonstrate, live, how to verify if the Precision Time Protocol (PTP) accuracy is compliant with RAN requirements, as well as real time characteristics. We will deep-dive on “why?” a real time kernel is required for PTP, and the fine tuning implied.

Join Red Hat experts to learn what are the expectations from the telecommunications industry when it comes to cloud-native network functions and how the technologies are adapting to the shift in the marketplace.

Building a Unified Hybrid Cloud Networking Stack using Open Virtual Network (OVN) - Ankur Kumar Sharma & Manoj Sharma, Nutanix Inc.
Open Virtual Network (OVN) is an open-source SDN controller, providing abstractions for switching, routing, security policies, etc., with steadily improving adoption in the community. However, its implementation is predominantly overlay based, which limits its usage in on-prem deployments, where backend implementation is expected to be VLAN rather than an overlay. We would like to bring OVN control plane to on-prem deployments as well.

In this talk, we will go through the limitations in OVN for on-prem deployment and the corresponding enhancements done. We will explain how these fixes, allowed us to build a unified SDN networking stack which could be used for building on-prem private clouds and overlay backed multi-tenant public clouds. We will further explain, additional work done in OVN to provide hybrid cloud connectivity between on-prem deployments and public clouds.

The TOSCA Datacenter - Tal Liron, Red Hat
TOSCA has been making inroads into the datacenter and it's high time we asked of it to take us all the way. Originally, it was aimed at deploying on-top-of-the-cloud workloads with the Simple Profile. Then the Simple Profile for NFV was introduced for modeling network services, again on-top-of-the-cloud. But what about the infrastructure? And how does networking fit in there, as a part-of-the-infrastructure workload? In this presentation we'll show how it's possible to use the full potential of TOSCA's object-oriented paradigm and its substitution feature to compose coherent topologies from hardware to networks to applications. This will allow for a more integrated and more manageable datacenter architecture, ready to tackle the ever increasing complexity of our cloud use cases.

NUMA Awareness in Kubernetes with Topology Manager - Louise Daly, Intel Corporation & Feng Pan, Red Hat
Kubernetes is becoming the choice orchestrator for containerized deployments, with users flocking to it. More workloads are becoming performance sensitive to achieve the results now expected of them. K8s has started to evolve to cater for such workloads with the creation of the CPU and Device Manager to handle the compute and device resources on a K8s node. However, these components act independently of each other, which results in sub-optimal resource allocations. These less than ideal resource allocations can severely impact performance sensitive workloads. We are working in the K8s community to introduce a Topology Manager component that will co-ordinate these resource allocations, to ensure optimal performance.This talk will introduce and demonstrate the Topology Manager, showcase benchmark results showcasing its benefits and finally discuss the different use cases this applies to.
