"We've chosen Kubernetes as our platform of choice for the next 10+ years" said the lead architect at one of the world's largest investment banks. "But we can't migrate our most critical apps onto it right now." We hear this from almost every major financial services company, from banks to insurance companies. Kubernetes is the future, but the limitations of the simple default networking in Kubernetes results in critical gaps to securely and reliably running high-performance financial applications on this new cloud native infrastructure . We will discuss these challenges in the context of three real-world user stories - from a large US bank, a major US insurance company, and a European payment processing platform. We will explore how each company leveraged a new open source Linux networking & security project called Cilium to provide secure, high-performance, and reliable connectivity to financial services applications running on Kubernetes clusters that spanned multiple geographies, all while giving their security teams the isolation and auditability required to meet strict financial compliance requirements.
