eBPF is a powerful and flexible technology that has been around for over 30 years, but it’s now gaining popularity within the cloud-native computing ecosystem. eBPF can solve many problems for the service mesh. For instance, it can enhance the service mesh. With its increasing popularity, some have even started asking whether eBPF could replace the service mesh.
In this episode of TFiR Let’s Talk, we hosted William Morgan, CEO and Co-Founder of Buoyant, to discuss eBPF in the context of cloud-native computing and Kubernetes networking, the pros and cons of eBPF, compare it to the sidecars model, and contrasting them from operational and security perspectives.
