Linkerd has long been a staple of security, reliability, and observability in Kubernetes, and Linkerd 2.15 can extend these benefits beyond the cluster! We’re seeing an increasing need for communication between cloud-native applications and workloads outside the cluster, like legacy software and IoT swarms — but unfortunately, we also often see a patchwork mess of insecure, unreliable communications between them.
During this session, we’ll take a look at how Linkerd can fix that. We’ve adopted SPIFFE for identity beyond Kubernetes and introduced new mechanisms for discovering and communicating with external workloads, extending security, reliability, and observability out past the edge of the cluster. Join us for a first look at how it all works!
