  • Introduction to a Cloud Native Data Plane with Kubernetes CNI Jun 2 2021 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Brian Skerry, Software Architect, Intel
    The needs of the data plane in a Kubernetes environment continue to evolve, and we have seen that many Cloud Native Functions require higher performance than offered by conventional networking solutions. To achieve the performance needs of these applications while continuing to support abstraction from the physical network interfaces a framework called CNDP (Cloud Native Data Plane) is described. A key part of this is to support the existing Kubernetes abstractions such as CNI (Container Network Interface), and to be based off of Linux network driver interfaces. Comparisons to existing alternatives will also be addressed.

  • 5G and MEC Service Assurance with Cloud Native Observability & AI Frameworks Recorded: Feb 9 2021 62 mins
    Rajesh Gadiyar, Intel Corporation, and Partha Seetala, Robin.io
    Building and running 5G Disaggregated RAN, 5G Core network functions, and Edge applications are increasingly following cloud native approach with containerization and Kubernetes orchestration. Kubernetes is not new for Enterprise Industry and has mature observability tools that extract metrics, logs, and traces across multiple layers of Cloud native stacks and provide visibility. ‘Service Assurance’ term is used by communication providers to observe the state of the entire system, analyze the state, and take any closed loop actions to satisfy the service level experience to their end users. Service Assurance, though it has many parallels with observability frameworks, needs to take few steps further due to these considerations – Distributed computing & networking across thousands of Edge & cloud locations, a higher number of network elements that constitute a service, and the need for near real-time analysis & associated closed loop actions. Hence the belief is that service assurance in Cloud native world shall include enhanced cloud native observability and AI frameworks and analytics applications for various use cases.
    In this talk, we will explore few service assurance use cases, cloud native observability frameworks, 5G service assurance requirements & considerations. We will also explore at least one cloud native service assurance framework that addresses both applications and 5G network service assurance requirements.

    This talk will be presented by Rajesh Gadiyar, VP, Data Platforms Group & CTO, Network Platforms Group, Intel Corporation, and Partha Seetala, Founder & CEO of Robin.io.

    Kubernetes is well known for managing the containerized applications. Via knative, K8s supports serverless workloads. Do you know that Kubernetes can be used to manage virtualized workloads too? No wonder Kubernetes is becoming choice of workload controller for Telco, Enterprises, Edge providers and cloud providers. One might ask for the need for virtualization support in K8s. Slicing/multi-tenancy is one reason. Though K8s supports operational isolation, tenants are concerned about Linux kernel sharing. With virtualization, one can achieve security isolation among workloads. Few other reasons are related to supporting legacy VM based applications and as well as supporting VMs that have specialized operating system. In this presentation, we will introduce you to various technologies that support VMs/VNFs in K8s environments.
