The popularity of modern applications built on container-based microservices architecture has led to new requirements for application networking. The emergence of the service mesh architectural concept directly addresses the need for disaggregated services for container environments. The service mesh makes it possible to deliver services such as traffic management, security, and observability to these applications. The open source Istio project for Kubernetes applications is an example of a service mesh. In this session, we will explore the service mesh as an architectural pattern and how modern applications both in containerized clusters as well as traditional applications outside can benefit from the granular delivery of networking services made possible by a service mesh. The session will include best practices used by enterprises who have deployed large container clusters.
