About this event

Hi everyone,

Up next for our March event is a deep dive into Istio, one of the popular service meshes we've seen emerge over the past few years.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Talk: Istio Mesh – To manage Container Deployments at Scale.


The service mesh is an infrastructure component that helps manage services running within our clusters. Without any changes to service or application code, solutions like Istio and Linkerd provide features to manage container deployments at scale. With Istio we get traffic management, security, rate limiting, monitoring, and many more things out of the box. We will discuss these solutions and some of their features at a high level, then roll in some specific demonstrations of using a service mesh to route and shift service traffic, easily manage deployments and test our services with micro benchmarks and fault injection. We will also look at some of the error scenarios you may encounter and how to deal with some of them while keeping your sanity.
