Senior Cloud Developer Advocate @Google. Focused on Kubernetes, Service Mesh, and Serverless technologies. 5+ years of experience implementing and architecting around Cloud, containers, and Kubernetes
Service Mesh is becoming a key component in the Cloud Native world. It allows dev and Ops teams to connect, secure, and observe applications without mixing business logic with infrastructure concerns. This way teams can focus on delivering value, letting the mesh do all the complex non-functional work like service discovery, load balancing, encryption, authentication, authorization, support for the circuit breaker pattern, and other capabilities. Istio is one of the major Open Source Service Mesh options available today. In this workshop, you will have an opportunity to deploy and try some of the key concepts of Istio. We will provide you with a Cloud Environment and all the tools and guidance needed to get your hands dirty with Istio
Service Mesh is becoming a key component in the Cloud Native world. It allows teams to connect, secure, and observe complex microservices environments built on containers and container orchestration tools. But most Service Mesh tools are also very complex and require a lot of engineering overhead to deploy and maintain. In this talk, we will explore the considerations you have to take into account before you commit to a Service Mesh-based stack. I had the opportunity to help customers design around Istio (one of the most famous Mesh tools) and learned a lot through the years. This talk is a distilled experience of the learnings I had.
