Service mesh technologies have gained significant interest in the past year. We often hear or read the words “Service Mesh” in blog posts or videos nowadays. But most of these don’t explain what the “Service Mesh” really is. In this talk, Anubhav Mishra helps us understand the components that make up a “Service Mesh” and how “Service Mesh” can help developers and operators adopt smart networking techniques to empower their organizations.
We will examine:
1. The history of the term “Service Mesh”.
2. What it takes to create a service mesh control plane and a data plane.
3. Responsibilities of each of those components and why they are critical to the overall functioning of a service mesh.
4. Real-world example of a service mesh in action that connects services running in VMs and containers securely.
