Best Container Networking Software

    Container networking software creates a virtualized, defined network to facilitate container-to-container connectivity. These internally virtualized networks allow communication and integration between containers or applications powered by container sets. The networks create isolated regions to allow multiple containers to communicate with the same network independently. Companies utilize these solutions for increased scalability and data accessibility of applications. They provide a higher level of security and increased capability for service discovery, essentially powering the microservices industry through linked container applications. Container networking software can increase the functionality of container management software and container orchestration software solutions by connecting designated applications.

    To qualify for inclusion in the Container Networking category, a product must:

    Create isolated networks for container instances
    Connect containers through designated networks
    Provide security layers for application networks
    Allow privileged external connectivity
    Allow for IP address management
