Kubernetes(k8s) Container Network Interface (CNI) is a specification for
managing network resources on a kubernetes cluster. CNI enables
plugin-based networking solution for containers ranging in functionality
from IP address management to access control policy management, QOS,
etc. Operators can pick and choose from the many packaged and open
CNI implementations that exist or could create custom CNIs to serve
their needs.

In this talk Rony Efraim and Liel Shoshan describe how they approach
hardware network offload enabling in k8s.

Rony and Liel will illustrate offloading with a bunch of CNIs that
can be used in  conjunction with OVS. In addition, they will also
describe how to offload for other K8s use cases like pod-to-pod
intra networking and enhancing ingress service load balancing via
dp_hash. And last but not least the speakers will describe
challenges faced and future work.
