Topic 1 - Welcome to the show. We’ve been following your work for a while (Nicira, OpenShift networking, etc), but tell our audience a little bit about your background.
Topic 2 - A few years ago I wrote an article that said, “if you’re in networking, the #1 skill you should learn is Linux”. Why has there been so much shift from “traditional networking” to so many new capabilities being implemented in software, and specifically Linux?
Topic 3 - Help us understand these two new concepts - eBPF and Cilium. It’s new packet filtering, it’s container networking, it’s multi-cluster networking, it can help with observability - lots going on here.
Topic 4 - What are some of the gaps in today’s networking/filtering/observability stacks that can improve with eBPF/Cilium?
Topic 5 - We’ve seen quite a few companies evolve from expertise in an open-source project to commercial offerings. What lessons have you learned from other companies that shape how Isovalent will both go-to-market and also engage with ecosystem partners?
Topic 6 - What are some of the common use-cases or applications you see that highlight the value of the Isovalent stack?
