You can solve these 3 problems today…with Calico Cloud

  • Workload access controls

    Implement pod-level workload access controls and protect containerized environments in the Kubernetes cluster from outside threats, while enabling applications and workloads to securely communicate with resources outside the cluster behind a firewall or other control point.

  • Compliance

    Create compliance policies for any compliance framework including PCI, SOC 2, and more. Continuously monitor compliance for your container, Kubernetes, and cloud environment. Retain a daily history of your compliance status. Generate on-demand or scheduled audit reports.

  • Faster troubleshooting

    Enable faster troubleshooting of Kubernetes workloads and applications with Service Graph, packet capture, anomaly detection, and performance hotspots, leading to shorter time-to-resolution, less application downtime, and improved quality of service.

  1. Verify that your cluster is compatible. Want to know what happens when you connect/disconnect your cluster to Calico Cloud? See Connect your cluster to Calico Cloud.

  2. Identify the cluster you want to use and apply the following manifest.

    You can use any Calico operator-installed cluster. Ensure kubectl is connected to it, and then execute the following:

    kubectl apply -f https://installer.calicocloud.io/manifests/cc-operator/latest/deploy.yaml
    
  3. Set your email address ($EMAIL) in the installer resource to get an invite and a license.

    
    kubectl apply -f - <<EOF
    apiVersion: operator.calicocloud.io/v1
    kind: Installer
    metadata:
      name: default
      namespace: calico-cloud
    spec:
      ownerEmail: '$EMAIL'
    EOF
    
  4. Accept your invite to join Calico.

    Open the email, fill in the brief onboarding dialog, and in about 5 minutes, your cluster will open in the Calico Cloud user interface. That’s it. You’re ready to go!

    Tip: To monitor the install, run this command:

     kubectl get installers.operator.calicocloud.io -n calico-cloud default -o jsonpath='{.status.state}'
