Microservices at Scale: Next Steps with Kubernetes and Service Mesh

A presentation at Microservices NYC Meetup in in New York, NY, USA by Jesse Butler

Microservices are the de facto standard architecture of cloud native software. With Docker and Kubernetes, it’s fairly simple to get a few services up and running. When this scales up to hundreds or thousands of containers and services, things can get complicated. Istio provides solutions within the service mesh, offering load balancing, traffic control, policy management features and easily enabling best-in-class observability, metrics and service graphing solutions. In this session, we’ll take a tour of Istio and discuss how its rich feature set helps us run cloud native at scale.
