Free and open source, Project Calico is designed to simplify, scale, and secure cloud networks.
Project Calico’s mission is to provide an open pure L3 approach to virtual networking for highly scalable data centers that integrates seamlessly with could orchestration systems (such as OpenStack) to enable secure IP communication between virtual machines, containers, or bare metal workloads.
Traditional SDNs are complex, making them hard to deploy and troubleshoot. Calico removes that complexity, with a simplified networking model designed for the demands of today’s cloud-native applications. Unlike SDNs that require a central controller, limiting scalability, Calico is built on a fully distributed, scale-out architecture. So it scales smoothly from a single developer laptop to large enterprise deployments.
Defining secure network policy used to be reserved for skilled network engineers. Calico’s powerful micro-segmentation capabilities build on a simple policy language that naturally expresses the developer’s intent.
Project Calico works with Docker, Kubernetes, Mesos, DC/OS, OpenStack – and more!
