This talk aims at covering the essentials of Open Virtual Network Kubernetes (OVN-K8s) plugin and how it is used in OpenShift. OVN-K8s is an open-source project that provides a robust networking solution for Kubernetes clusters with OVN and Open vSwitch at its core. The highlights of this talk will include:
- The architecture and key concepts of OVN-K8s plugin
- How Kubernetes resources map into OVN
- Differences between OVN-K8 and its predecessor
- New features supported by OVNK8s
- Demo showing how all these components work under the hood

As OVN-K8s became the default certified Container Network Interface (CNI) solution for Openshift in release 4.12+, it is important to understand why this networking technology was chosen. Learning more about this can be of great value to an engineer, developer, operator or user in the OpenShift ecosystem. After attending this session, you will walk away with a good understanding of OVN-K8s, as well as how to troubleshoot issues related to this CNI.
