Did you know that CNI itself isn’t Kubernetes specific? Container Network Interface (CNI) is an API providing a networking solution for containers on Linux and it’s Kubernetes agnostic.
Those who deploy network-centric workloads want richer interactions between their workloads and the networking that underpins them. These people are Kubernetes people, and they’re looking for K8s-native ways to interact with CNI.
Developers want to perform monitoring, have up-to-date metadata, and interact with CNI configurations. If we don’t have a lingua franca between CNI and K8s we take away commonality between networking implementations and endanger customers with vendor lock-in, and add confusion for admins who have to unravel science experiments.
Today CNI sits at a crossroads. There’s SIG-Network’s initiative for k8s multi-networking, Multus CNI’s ability to speak both K8s & CNI, and CNI on the precipice of defining 2.0. Help us save CNI and explore the possibilities for its future.
