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.
