Today on the Day Two Cloud podcast we go deep on the Cilium service mesh, including a packet walk that takes us from packet ingestion all the way through a Kubernetes cluster. We also talk about how Cilium eBPF differs from other sidecar proxies and the potential performance and observability gains. Cilium is an open-source project under the Linux Foundation’s Cloud Native Computing Foundation hub.
Strap on your propeller beanie as we try to keep up with guest is Thomas Graf, CTO and Co-Founder of Isovalent. He’s also a co-creator of Cilium and chair of the eBPF Governing Board.
