Service Mesh in the Real World with Istio

March 4, 2020

Unsure about what a service mesh is, or when it makes sense to use one? This video series featuring Christian Posta from Solo.io and Sandeep Parikh from Google  takes an application-centric view of service mesh to think about what networking capabilities an application may need based on the user case and end users served.

Focusing on the Istio service mesh, this video series will cover:

  • Discuss a challenge that affects developers and operations
  • Review how that problem has historically been solved
  • Outline how service mesh can solve that problem differently
  • Live demos
  • What’s new in the latest Istio release
