Container based virtualization systems are rapidly growing and being researched and deployed in many different industry sectors. They provide a convenient and lightweight solution, assuring efficient and flexible resource sharing among different applications and services. This Thesis work is a comprehensive study of container based frameworks and their networking solutions. Networking is an important aspect of container based service provisioning and impacts the performance of the services. For a more detailed investigation I selected Kubernetes, I overviewed the best networking solutions available for this container orchestrator. I focused on the two widely used alternatives, WeaveNet and Flannel. I proposed a test environment and I implemented an automated Kubernetes deployment tool that sets up this environment on a cluster of bare metal servers. I used the iperf benchmarking tool to provide a measurement based evaluation of the performance of networking solutions, and I found that WeaveNet can sustain higher throughputs than Flannel. Finally I concluded my work.
