Tigera has announced the availability of Calico Cloud in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, an online store providing applications and services for use on Microsoft Azure. Tigera customers can now take advantage of the scalability, high availability, and security of Azure, with streamlined deployment and management.
Calico Cloud gives DevOps, DevSecOps, and Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) teams a single pane of glass across multi-cluster and multi-cloud Kubernetes environments to deploy a standard set of egress access controls, enforce security policies for compliance, and observe and troubleshoot applications.
Calico said it delivers an easy-to-understand and action-oriented view of Kubernetes networking, security and application layer running on Azure virtual machines (VMs) or Azure Kubernetes Services (AKS) that is otherwise extremely difficult and time-consuming to come by, due to the abstracted, ephemeral, and distributed nature of Kubernetes.
Calico provides automated observability capabilities that DevOps and SREs can use to quickly resolve performance hotspots and troubleshoot connectivity issues.
