As the popularity of microservices continues to rise, so does the need for an efficient means of intercommunication. Features such as service discovery, client-side load balancing, and circuit breakers become invaluable tools as the complexity of your landscape grows. Thus, the rising popularity of the service mesh as means of delivering those capabilities.
While this technology space is still young, Istio and Envoy have already become the tools that many use to solve these problems. The Pivotal Application Service (PAS) integration with these solutions introduced weighted routing and guaranteed service identity—and now we’re bringing these features to Pivotal Container Service (PKS) via the new Pivotal Ingress Router.
In this webinar, we’ll explore why a service mesh matters and how Pivotal Ingress Router works, and we’ll give you a sneak peak into its future.
