Demystifying Kubernetes Networking for Edge Applications Part 2

Delve deeper into what our webinar is all about!

The second in a two-part series, this webinar was the sequel to Calsoft’s “Demystifying Kubernetes for Edge”. In the previous webinar, the host Nitin Singhvi tackled the advantages, challenges, and use cases of Kubernetes for Edge. You can find a recording of the previous webinar here. 


Kubernetes has emerged as the clear winner for many companies during the shift to Edge computing. Infrastructure-agnostic and capable of managing different kinds of workloads running on different kinds of compute resources, Kubernetes is considered indispensable.  

Even so, many companies still lack the knowledge or skill to deploy Kubernetes effectively. Kubernetes’ Networking capabilities are foundational to its success, and yet many companies cannot make full use of them.  

On 19th August 2021, Calsoft presented a webinar titled “Demystifying Kubernetes Networking for Edge Applications”, which touched upon various Kubernetes networking models for Edge applications, various CNI options available, and went into topics such aslike Kubernetes networking and the best ways to go about it, the tools you need and its primary use cases for developers & businesses. Click the link below to request the recording.  

Key Takeaways:

  • Networking requirements for K8S based Edge Computing applications
  • Fundamentals of K8S Networking models
  • (Container-to-Container, Pod-to-Pod, Pod-to-Service, Internet-to-Service networking
  • Introduction to available CNI options such as Calico, Multus, OVS-DPDK, OVN, Cilium, etc
  • Dive into high-speed CNIs & how they work
  • Use cases for Developers and Businesses
  • Q&A

Thought Leadership

A Deep-dive into Kubernetes for Edge

This ebrief focuses on current scenarios of adoption of Kubernetes for edge use cases, current Kubernetes + edge case studies, approached of deployment and open source and commercial solutions.

Kubectrlbot – Speak & Manage Kubernetes

In this white paper, you will see a robotic way of managing complex commands and operations of Kubernetes. Kubectrlbot’s voice command can replace skilled individuals required to manage Kubernetes commands and APIs. This provides the user an easy “speak and manage” feature.

The Use Case for Kubernetes at the Edge

Key developments around how Kubernetes has evolved to manage the applications and workloads at the edge

Powering Edge With Kubernetes: A Primer

Understand why and how Kubernetes will play a role to overcome such challenges.

Why kubelet runs as a system service in Kubernetes cluster and not as pod/daemonsets?

Understand why we cannot run kubelet as pod/daemonsets in k8s cluster and it runs as a system service.

Analysis of Kubernetes and OpenStack Combination for Modern Data Centers

Providing agility is the key capability of Kubernetes for data centers and OpenStack has several successful projects for focusing on storage and networking of workloads, and support for myriad applications.
