Service Mesh: Beyond the hype
Service meshes undoubtedly bring in a lot of value for managing and operationalizing your production micro services. With all new technologies there is a lot of hype and it’s easy to miss the operational considerations that need to be factored into a technology decision. This month, a speaker from Aporeto will discuss this and cover (1) Operational benefits of service meshes (2) Considerations of where and when services meshes are applicable to your applications. We will dive into some performance trade-offs you will need to make and provide some data to consider when making these trade-offs (3) Considerations when deploying a service mesh in hybrid cloud or multi-cluster environments (4) Security policy governance for your service mesh and non-mesh environments ---- Bio: Ariful Huq - Director of Product Management, Aporeto Ariful has 13 years of experience in developing, launching and operationalizing enterprise security solutions and SaaS services for growth and startup companies.

What we're about

BayLISA is the premiere system administration user group in Silicon Valley and the San Francisco Bay Area. Founded in the very early 90s after the fourth Large Installation System Administration (LISA) conference, BayLISA has supported and educated systems, network, storage, virtualization, and other technology professionals in the Bay Area for over 20 years.

We use Meetup to coordinate meeting attendance, announcements, and reminders. We have our official organizational presence on the web, including links to membership, sponsorship, and mailing lists, at (

Our legacy description:

One way to put it is that there are many user groups, but we are the sysadmins group. BayLISA includes system and network administrators across a range of skill levels. BayLISA meets monthly to discuss topics of interest to administrators and managers of sites supporting more than 100 users and/or computers. The meetings are free and open to the public.

BayLISA grew out of an after-hours discussion among attendees of the USENIX LISA IV conference. The idea was to provide a forum for Sysadmin professionals in the San Francisco Bay area to get together and exchange ideas, hear speakers address topics of interest and most importantly, socialize.

BayLISA stands for: Bay Area Large Installation System Administrators
