Tigera: Kubernetes on Windows: Addressing Critical Security and Observability Challenges

Tigera: Kubernetes on Windows: Addressing Critical Security and Observability Challenges


Windows containers provide a modern way to encapsulate processes and package dependencies, making it easier to apply DevOps practices for Windows applications. Windows container workloads are increasingly being orchestrated with Kubernetes. DevOps and SRE teams running applications in Windows Kubernetes environments are recognizing the need for greater security and observability as these workloads move into production. Many of these teams also need a unified Kubernetes-native solution that works across both Windows and Linux workloads.

In collaboration with Microsoft, Tigera has leveraged the latest Windows HNS (Host Network Service) platform capabilities to deliver seamless security and observability on Calico Enterprise for cross-platform Windows and Linux Kubernetes deployments. This breakthrough enables DevOps teams in Windows as well as mixed Windows/Linux environments to automatically apply and enforce Kubernetes-native security policies to lock down workloads, while leveraging cluster-wide observability for faster troubleshooting and problem resolution.

Join us for a fireside chat with Amit Gupta, VP of Product, and John Armstrong, Director of Product Marketing at Tigera as they discuss how Tigera’s Calico Enterprise for Windows solution ingeniously applies automation and machine learning to help DevOps and SRE teams address the most common and vexing Kubernetes security and observability challenges.

This fireside chat will address these issues and more, and will be open to questions from attendees.

What are the most common Kubernetes security use cases?
– How can I protect my Windows Kubernetes workloads from unauthorized access?
– How can I address requirements for compliance reporting?
– How can I efficiently diagnose and quickly resolve operational issues?
– What are the advantages of a Kubernetes-native approach?
