View Recording

Earlier this year, Linkerd was voted into the CNCF as its fifth project. Created by William Morgan and Oliver Gould in 2015, Linkerd is an open source “service mesh” for cloud-native applications. Linkerd brings scalable, production-tested reliability to cloud-native applications by providing dedicated infrastructure layer for service communication that adds resilience, visibility and control to applications without requiring complex application integration. Linkerd is used in production by companies around the globe, often in conjunction with fellow CNCF projects Kubernetes, Prometheus, and gRPC.

After this webinar you will understand what problems Linkerd solves and how.


William is the CEO and cofounder of Buoyant, which builds open source reliability infrastructure for the cloud-native stack. Prior to Buoyant, he was an early engineer at Twitter, where he led efforts around media and platform features. He has spent the last decade engineering high-scale systems at Bay Area startups, including Powerset and Adap.tv.
