Service meshes and why you might want one


Engineers adopting microservice architectures quickly realize implementing rate limiting, circuit breaking, timeouts, retries and implementing metrics, logging and tracing are no simple tasks. Enter the Service Mesh. Let’s talk about:

  • What is a service mesh? Why do you need one?

  • What types of service meshes are available? How do they contrast?

  • How do you tell which best suits your needs?


Benefits to the Ecosystem


A moderately-sized microservices deployment needs common a substrate of reliability and observability tooling. Service meshes aim to fill this need. Those new to service meshes find themselves asking what they are and which to choose. This talk aims to provide users with a guide to understanding the tooling landscape and which tool is best-suited for their needs.
