19:50 Embracing Istio at a Telco (in Spanish)

What is the next generation microservices architecture about? What is service mesh? What is Istio?

In this talk we will talk why and how we embraced Istio for running a production-ready environment of hundreds of microservices. Learning Istio for the first time is hard, but we will explain how to make it easy. Observability? Authentication? Advanced deployment strategies? Timeouts? Retry policies? This can all be done directly in the service mesh.

Istio is production-ready but still in active development, there are many things you need to keep in mind if you don't want to fail.
