BumbleBee can also automatically generate boilerplate user-space code for developing eBPF tools and brings a Docker-like experience to packaging an eBPF program. This allows it to plug into other OCI-image workflows for publishing and distribution.Idit Levine, founder and CEO, Solo.io. Said:
“At Solo.io, we see eBPF as a critical enabling technology that will improve application networking. We’ve been working during the last year to leverage eBPF technology with Gloo Mesh, our Istio-based service mesh offering for the enterprise.”
eBPF comes from extended Berkeley Packet Filter and is a kernel technology that can run sandboxed programs in an operating system kernel, providing a safe way to enhance the kernel with observability, networking, and security technologies.
BumbleBee also includes a CLI (command line interface) and provides tooling to automate away the rest of the experience.
