'Can you hear me now?' Networking for containers

Networking: The final frontier These are the voyages of the Sysadmin, JayC
His 5 year mission
To explore strange new worlds
To seek out new life and new containerizations
To boldly go where no man has gone before
Macvlans? VXLANs? VETH pipes? just how many types of virtual networking does Linux have and why would I want to use them?
This talk is intended to give you a quick run through of all the technologies available, why you would use them and why they are designed how they are in an attempt to dissuade you from reimplementing the networking wheel in userspace over TCP (the talk will explain why this is bad as well)
You should be able to come away from this talk knowing what technology to pick for each situation and understand the trade offs with each choice as you attempt to chose the best networking model for your container (or VM) fleets
This is part 3 of 3 in the series of talks on containerization
