One of the last ways that containers still tend to be inferior to VM's is networking. The usual model of port mapping, iptables and proxies is both more complicated and less useful than having containers be first-class citizens on your network.

Imagine giving your containers real IP addresses that can be reached from anywhere and any host, without caring about port mappings or what host a container is running on.

In this talk, Rohan Singh will show several methods for making this a reality from a developer's perspective — starting with a primer in networking for developers and culminating in the how, why, and why nots of IP over UDP, BGP, VPC's and some other acronyms. Also expect a look into Spotify's network, with containers and uncontainerized services speaking to each other across physical machines in our own data centers, EC2 instances, Google Cloud VM's and developer laptops.
