About the Talk

In the cloud-native era, networking plays a vital role for businesses to offer reliable services to their customers. A typical application in Kubernetes runs multiple microservices that interconnect with each other and leverage multiple networking resources.

In this session, DigitalOcean engineers discuss choosing the right networking configuration for your business and walk through common setups and lessons learned when creating an efficient and secure application.

What You’ll Learn

  • How to secure and isolate your network using DigitalOcean Kubernetes

Clusters are compatible with standard Kubernetes toolchains and integrate natively with DigitalOcean Load Balancers and block storage volumes.
