Abstract

With the growing adoption of cloud native architectures, Istio has become the de facto framework to load-balance, route, secure and monitor the traffic that flows between services. Istio provides a common networking, security, policy, and telemetry substrate for services that we call a ‘Service Mesh’. Come learn how a service mesh helps with the transition from monoliths to microservices, to empower operations teams, and to adopt security best-practices. Then we’ll touch on a few advanced use cases, like how a service mesh can help you build applications deployed across multiple clusters and multiple infrastructure providers.
