You are preparing to embark on a journey to service meshes. You have a full pack: Docker containers, Kubernetes orchestration, Istio/Envoy service mesh, and other essentials. You’re all set! Or are you? It’s no secret that sophisticated enterprises are using data to deliver new value and gain competitive advantage. As a result, applications and microservices produce, consume, and share massive amounts of data. Further, one of the common characteristics of a microservices architecture is the decentralization of data management, so data is distributed over a vast surface area. And of course all of this data needs to be controlled and protected for compliance with data security and privacy regulations such as PCI-DSS, HIPAA, and GDPR. What does this confluence of data-related trends mean for your journey to service meshes? An enterprise-class service mesh must account for data. For example, what data stores exist in the mesh? Where is the data located? What types of sensitive data are in the mesh? How is the data secured? Who is accessing the data? Before you start your journey to service meshes, learn how you should include a data-centric approach in your essentials from the beginning.
