Enabling multi-tenant and extensible networking in Kubernetes is of paramount importance for cloud providers requires traffic isolation across tenants. By introducing a new data-plane built using XDP and inter-working custom resource operators, we will discuss how to enable multi-tenant networking at scale without compromising packet processing performance. Sherif and Ying will discuss the use of cases of networking isolation and fast provisioning within the Kubernetes environment for large scale cloud.

They will conclude with a demo.
