Hoot Livestream Series to Learn All About Envoy Proxy

Betty Junod | July 19, 2020

In our previous Hoot series, we looked at the different service meshes and API gateway solutions available today, compared their architecture and philosophies. In our new series Chief Architect, Yuval Kohavi will provide a deep dive into Envoy Proxy. 

What is Envoy Proxy?

Envoy is an open source edge and service proxy designed for cloud-native applications. Originally developed at Lyft (and used internally for their service) and later open sourced to the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, Envoy is a high performance  C++ distributed proxy designed for single services and applications, as well as a communication bus and “universal data plane” designed for large microservice “service mesh” architectures.  Envoy is the proxy technology that drives the data plane for leading service meshes (Istio, Consul Connect, AWS AppMesh, etc) and API Gateways like Gloo.  

 

Episode List

Starting from the fundamentals, each demo-filled episode focuses on one functional area like observability, customization, security and more — to help you get a deep understanding of how Envoy Proxy works, it’s role in cloud-native application architecture, and how to use it.
