Let's understand the role of service mesh in the Kubernetes world. Learn about Istio and its features (and if you even need it).

Cloud Collective is a meetup for technologists interested in the Cloud Native approach towards developing and deploying web & mobile applications, streaming analytics, ETL pipelines, microservices, containers, functions, and applying Infrastructure as Code principles for automating infrastructure on AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud.  

In this recorded meetup, you will learn about 2 scenarios:

Scenario 1: You have been using Kubernetes for the last few years and now your distributed platform has become complex. You now have 100s of microservices communicating over http and tcp. You are now looking into abstracting traffic management, service-service security (mTLS, authN, authZ) and telemetry out of the services to a separate layer aka Service Mesh.

Scenario 2: You have heard about Service Mesh for a while and want to understand features, complexities, configurations before jumping on to it completely.

Agenda:
• Monolith to Microservices
• Operational Challenges with Microservices
• How a Service-mesh fits in to address those challenges
• What is Istio?
• Feature Walkthrough
• Demo with installation and configurations
