Consultancy companies build and maintain software and infrastructure for diverse customers varying in size, industry, and technology stack. Customers typically have different requirements for fault tolerance, scalability, financial expenses, security, and more. As infrastructure stacks continue to evolve, consultancy firms need solutions that meet client expectations and also prepare their platforms for the future.

World-leading consulting companies are now turning to Cilium, leveraging its capabilities to deliver secure, high-performance, and observable cloud native solutions to clients ranging from startups, nationwide banks, and large enterprises.

We couldn’t be held back by the existing limitations any longer and decided to find another CNI to use in our Kubernetes platform — one that could handle all the new challenges. After settling on our new networking infrastructure in production environments and evaluating its performance and new features, we are pleased with our decision to adopt Cilium as its benefits are evident.
Anton Kuliashov Software Engineer, Palark

Palark leverages Cilium to design and maintain diverse infrastructure solutions for companies, catering to their unique needs across various industries, technologies, and deployment environments.


Easily Integrate With Customer's Infrastructure.

Consulting companies cater to various clients with different choices of infrastructures and cloud providers. Operating across different environments often results in additional operational and resource overhead. Cilium provides a consistent experience for operators across different environments. With Cilium's cluster mesh, multiple clusters can be joined into a large unified network regardless of the Kubernetes distribution or location each is running.

Cilium also reduces the number of tools operators have to deal with; for example, Cilium's load balancing can replace traditional hardware load balancers. Cilium's Layer 2 announcement can eliminate the need for extra tooling like MetalLB. Together, these features ensure that consulting companies can offer uniform, high-quality services regardless of their client's chosen infrastructure.

Visibility Into Customers Infrastructure Across Clouds, Clusters, and Premises, Independent of The Underlying Platform

Cilium's Hubble delivers comprehensive visibility across various platforms, whether on-premises, cloud, or clusters. This unified data plane approach allows for consistent monitoring across deployments, aiding in workload migration between clusters and simplifying the onboarding of new infrastructure providers.

Observability data from Cilium is made available using modern standards such as Prometheus and can be visualized using powerful tools such as Grafana. Cilium also supports traditional standards such as sFlow and NetFlow.

As of today, we have our multi-cloud cluster running. We have nodes running in AWS, Azure, and virtual machines running on-prem, all part of the same cluster. So visibility is all through the same tool - Hubble, you can see it all. It is working quite well, and we're really happy with it.
