About this event

Istio: sail into the service mesh

A service mesh lets you automate and supercharge your network in the same way Kubernetes let you automate and supercharge deploying and running software. Learn about the history of the pattern inside Google, the open-source Istio service mesh based on it, how service mesh is for more than just VMs, and why it turns out it's not complex: everyone is just holding it wrong!
