About this talk

Cloud-native applications can include thousands of clustered containers, distributed components, and complex interactions. To build them effectively, developers need a new approach to infrastructural concerns like monitoring, storage, scaling, orchestration, and security. The Istio service mesh offers a configurable infrastructure layer that reliably and efficiently manages service discovery, load balancing, encryption, authentication and authorization, circuit breakers, and more. On our webinar we will explore the main features of istio, the architectural overview, what is new with istiod (1.5), and review additional open source tools to help you manage Istio. Key Discussion Points: 1. Istio’s features overview 2. Architectural overview 3. Features added between Istio 1.0 and 1.5 4. Architectural changes between Istio 1.0 and 1.5 5. New Istio control plane: istiod (1.5+) 6.
