Project Calico

The ubiquitous solution for Kubernetes networking and security

"Project Calico" is an open source project with an active development and user community. This project gave birth to "Open-Source Calico" and has become the most widely used solution for Kubernetes networking and security, serving more than 2 million nodes in 166 countries every day. The SaaS solution Calico Cloud and the business solution Calico Enterprise were derived from this.

Calico gives you a choice of data tiers, including

  • pure Linux eBPF data plane
