Presented by

Lakmal Warusawithana, Senior Director - Cloud Architecture, WSO2 and Pubudu Gunatilaka, Associate Technical Lead, WSO2

About this talk

In a world of disaggregated API-based architectures, developers are increasingly adopting microservices — and Service Mesh is being used to control many service-to-service communications. But securely communicating and governing between such services is becoming a key challenge. To make matters more complicated, multiple implementations of service meshes exist today, and none of them address the concern of how the exploding number of APIs can be exposed in a controlled and secure manner to their API consumers. In this webinar, we will discuss how to augment service mesh functionality with API management capabilities, so you can create an end-to-end solution for your entire business functionality — from microservices, to APIs, to end-user applications. We will explore: * Basic service mesh approaches * How service meshes and API management need to co-exist * An example of WSO2 API Manager’s out-of-the-box integration with Istio service mesh * How WSO2 API Manager can be used to securely expose APIs from the Istio * A live example demo
