This Brown Bag stars Steven Sherotsky of Citrix, who knows all about networking and proxies.
We will explore the pros and cons of four architecture choices for microservices-based application delivery including:
- 2-tier ingress: Simplest to deploy and get started quickly
- Unified ingress: Simple to deploy for networking-savvy platform teams
- Service mesh lite: Service mesh-like benefits with less complexity
- Service mesh: Best observability, security, and traffic steering but complex to deploy
Our evaluation criteria will include simplicity, efficiency, security, scalability, observability, integration with CNCF tools, impact on CI/CD strategy, advanced traffic engineering options, ease of deployment, required skill sets, team structure, and more.
