Service mesh is the future of application connectivity. It delivers immediate value to any architecture by increasing the security, reliability and observability of our application traffic. However, understanding and deploying service meshes in production is a daunting undertaking. This session will focus on understanding service mesh from the basic concepts to the most advanced topics and talk practically about how we can implement service mesh in production.

In this webinar, Marco dives into how service mesh can be easily used to solve common challenges in your application architecture from day one. He will cover:

  • Service mesh explained: concepts, benefits and pitfalls.
  • Adding security, reliability, and observability of service traffic with a mesh.
  • Live demo of deploying a service mesh in production in minutes on Kubernetes.

These concepts will be demoed live using Kuma, an open-source control plane built on top of Envoy.
