Microservices at Scale with Istio

A presentation at Oracle OpenWorld in in London, UK 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.
