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
