An inherent to component to any distributed application, networking is one of the most complicated and expansive infrastructure technologies. Container networking needs to be developer-friendly. Application-driven and portable. With developers busily adopting container technologies, the time has come for network engineers and operators to prepare for the unique challenges brought on by cloud native applications. What container networking specifications bring to the table and how to leverage them.

Overlay/Underlay - Betting on Container Networking

  1. 1. Betting on Container Networking Lee Calcote July 27th, 2016 Overlay Underlay  http://calcotestudios.com/over-under

  3. 3. Show of Hands @lcalcote
  4. 4. Container Networking   ...it's complicated.
  5. 5. Preset Expectations                         Experience & Management           Reliability & Performance same demands and measurements developer-friendly and application-driven simple to use and deploy for developers and operators better or at least on par with their existing virtualized data center networking
  6. 6. Container Networking Specifications
  7. 7. Very interesting but no need to actually know these @lcalcote
  8. 8. (CNM) Container Network Model   ...is a specification proposed by Docker, adopted by projects such as   Plugins built by projects such as , , and libnetwork Weave Project Calico Kuryr (CNI) Container Network Interface   ...is a specification proposed by CoreOS and adopted by projects such as , , , , and     Plugins created by projects such as , , and rkt Kurma Kubernetes Cloud Foundry Apache Mesos Weave Project Calico Contiv Networking @lcalcote Container Networking Specifications
  9. 9. Container Network Model Specification @lcalcote Remote DriversLocal Drivers
  10. 10. Container Network Model Topology @lcalcote Network Sandbox Endpoint Backend Network Docker Container Network Sandbox Endpoint Docker Container Network Sandbox Endpoint Docker Container Endpoint Frontend Network
  11. 11. @lcalcote Container Network Interface (CNI)
  12. 12. @lcalcote Container Network Interface Flow   1. Container runtime needs to: 1. allocate a network namespace to the container and assign a container ID 2. pass along a number of parameters (CNI config) to network driver. 2. Network driver attaches container to a network and then reports the assigned IP address back to the container runtime (via JSON schema)
  13. 13. @lcalcote CNI Network (JSON) { "name": "mynet", "type": "bridge", "bridge": "cni0", "isGateway": true, "ipMasq": true, "ipam": { "type": "host-local", "subnet": "10.22.0.0/16", "routes": [ { "dst": "0.0.0.0/0" } ] }
  14. 14. CNI and CNM Similar in that each... ...are driver-based, and therefore democratize the selection of which type of container networking  ...allow multiple network drivers to be active and used concurrently each provide a one-to-one mapping of network to that network’s driver ...allow containers to join one or more networks. ...allow the container runtime to launch the network in its own namespace  segregate the application/business logic of connecting the container to the network to the network driver.   @lcalcote
  15. 15. CNI and CNM Different in that... CNI supports any container runtime CNM only support Docker runtime CNI is simpler, has adoption beyond its creator CNM acts as a broker for conflict resolution CNI is still considering its approach to arbitration @lcalcote
  16. 16. Types of Container Networking None Links and Ambassadors Container-mapped Bridge Host Overlay   Underlay MACvlan IPvlan Direct Routing Point-to-Point Fan Networking   @lcalcote
  17. 17. None @lcalcote container receives a network stack, but lacks an external network interface.   it does, however, receive a loopback interface.
  18. 18. Links facilitate single host connectivity "discovery" via /etc/hosts or env vars @lcalcote Ambassadors facilitate multi-host connectivity uses a tcp port forwarder (socat) Web Host MySQL Ambassador PHP DB Host PHP Ambassador MySQL link link
  19. 19. Container-Mapped one container reuses (maps to) the networking namespace of another container. @lcalcote may only be invoked when running a docker container (cannot be defined in Dockerfile):     --net=container=some_container_name_or_id
  20. 20. Bridge Ah, yes, docker0 default networking for Docker uses a host-internal network leverages iptables for network address translation (NAT) and port-mapping @lcalcote
  21. 21. Host container created shares its network namespace with the host default Mesos networking mode better performance  easy to understand and troubleshoot suffers port conflicts secure? @lcalcote
  22. 22. Overlay use networking tunnels to delivery communication across hosts   Most useful in hybrid cloud scenarios or when shadow IT is needed Many tunneling technologies exist VXLAN being the most commonly used Requires distributed key-value store @lcalcote
  23. 23. K/V Store for Overlay Networking Docker - requires K/V store (built-in as experimental as of 1.12) WeaveMesh - does not require K/V store WeaveNet - limited to single network; requires K/V store Flannel -  requires K/V store Plumgrid - requires K/V store; built-in and not pluggable Midokura - requires K/V store; built-in and not pluggable Calico - requires K/V store @lcalcote
  24. 24. Underlays expose host interfaces (i.e. the physical network interface at eth0) directly to containers running on the host MACvlan IPvlan Direct Routing @lcalcote not necessarily public cloud friendly
  25. 25. Point-to-Point Default rkt networking mode Uses NAT (IPMASQ) by default Creates a virtual ethernet pair placing one on the host and the other into the container pod leverages iptables to provide port-forwarding for inbound traffic to the pod internal communication between other containers in the pod over the loopback interface @lcalcote Internet
  26. 26. MACvlan allows creation of multiple virtual network interfaces behind the host’s single physical interface Each virtual interface has unique MAC and IP addresses assigned with restriction: the IP address needs to be in the same broadcast domain as the physical interface eliminates the need for the Linux bridge, NAT and port- mapping allowing you to connect directly to physical interface   @lcalcote
  27. 27. IPvlan allows creation of multiple virtual network interfaces behind the host’s single physical interface Each virtual interface has unique IP addresses assigned Same MAC address used for all containers L2-mode containers must be on same network as host (similar to MACvlan) L3-mode containers must be on different network than host Network advertisement and redistribution into the network still needs to be done. @lcalcote
  28. 28. MACvlan and IPvlan While multiple modes of networking are supported on a given host, MACvlan and IPvlan can’t be used on the same physical interface concurrently. ARP and broadcast traffic, the L2 modes of these underlay drivers operate just as a server connected to a switch does by flooding and learning using 802.1d packets IPvlan L3-mode - No multicast or broadcast traffic is allowed in. In short, if you’re used to running trunks down to hosts, L2 mode is for you. If scale is a primary concern, L3 has the potential for massive scale. @lcalcote
  29. 29. Direct Routing Benefits of pushing past L2 to L3 resonates with network engineers leverage existing network infrastructure use routing protocols for connectivity; easier to interoperate with existing data center across VMs and bare metal servers Better scaling More granular control over filtering and isolating network traffic Easier traffic engineering for quality of service Easier to diagnose network issues @lcalcote
  30. 30. Fan Networking a way of gaining access to many more IP addresses, expanding from one assigned IP address to 250 more IP addresses  “address expansion” - multiplies the number of available IP addresses on the host, providing an extra 253 usable addresses for each host IP Fan addresses are assigned as subnets on a virtual bridge on the host, IP addresses are mathematically mapped between networks uses IP-in-IP tunneling; high performance particularly useful when running containers in a public cloud where a single IP address is assigned to a host and spinning up additional networks is prohibitive or running another load-balancer instance is costly @lcalcote
  31. 31. Fan Networking @lcalcote
  32. 32. Network Capabilities and Services   IPAM, multicast, broadcast, IPv6, load-balancing, service discovery, policy, quality of service, advanced filtering and performance are all additional considerations to account for when selecting networking that fits your needs.   @lcalcote
  33. 33. IPv6 and IPAM IPv6 lack of support for IPv6 in the top public clouds reinforces the need for other networking types (overlays and fan networking) some tier 2 public cloud providers offer support for IPv6 IPAM most container runtime engines default to host-local for assigning addresses to containers as they are connected to networks. Host-local IPAM involves defining a fixed block of IP addresses to be selected. DCHP is universally supported across the container networking projects. CNM and CNI both have IPAM built-in and plugin frameworks for integration with IPAM systems @lcalcote
