Integration with Calico with Flannel Networking (Previously Canal)
What is Calico with Flannel Networking?
It is possible to deploy Calico networking plugin for your Kubernetes cluster in such a way that the cluster uses Calico for network policy and flannel overlay with VXLAN for networking.
Deploying Calico this way (what was previously called project Canal) allows users to easily deploy Calico and flannel networking together as a unified networking solution — combining Calico’s industry-leading network policy enforcement with the flannel overlay and non-overlay network connectivity options.
