What is Calico?

Calico is an open source networking and network security solution for containers, virtual machines, and native host-based workloads.

Calico supports multiple data planes, so you can choose the technologies that best suit your needs, including: a state-of-the-art pure Linux eBPF dataplane, a standard Linux networking dataplane, and a Windows HNS dataplane.

Whether you prefer cutting edge eBPF, or the familiarity of the standard primitives that existing system administrators already know, Calico delivers blazing fast performance and exceptional scalability.
