Connecting K8s Pods to Legacy VM Workloads using Cilium Egress Gateway | Mirantis Labs – Tech Talks

Register for our next talk:
Additional documentation on Cilium Egress:

As more crucial workloads are migrated to Kubernetes, organizations need to ensure connectivity to existing workloads running on-premises in virtual machines.

In this Tech Talk, Mirantis Solution Architects Jas Atwal & Wassim Soualhi walk you through the process of providing & observing secure network connectivity between container workloads on Kubernetes & legacy workloads running on VMs (e.g. databases, etc.) using Cilium CNI and Cilium Egress Gateway.

You’ll walk away from this talk with an understanding of:
– Why you need a secure solution for connectivity between on-prem virtualized workloads and workloads on Kubernetes
– How Cilium CNI & Cilium egress gateway can help
– How to get started with the Cilium toolkit

Our next installment is set to premiere a week from Tuesday, June 27, 2023 at 2:00AM PDT & will cover Crossplane – a tool for cloud service provisioning & management (linked above).
