PRO: The Microservices Conference: Service Mesh Containers Kubernetes [clear filter]
Tuesday, September 11
 

9:00am

PRO TALK: The Service-Mesh Landscape
Service-mesh technology promises to deliver a lot of value to a cloud-native application, but it doesn't come without some hype. In this talk, we'll look at what is a "service mesh", how it compares to similar technology (Netflix OSS, API Management, ESBs, etc) and what options for service mesh exist today.

PRO TALK: Don’t Forget the Data When Embarking on Your Journey to Service Meshes
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.

PRO TALK: Istio: Weaving, Securing, and Observing your Microservices
With the rapid adoption of microservices, Istio has become the de facto framework to load-balance, route, secure, and monitor the traffic that flows between microservices. This is accomplished in part through Istio’s service mesh, which provides a common networking, security, policy, and telemetry substrate for services. We will explain how the service mesh can help with the transition to microservices, empower operations teams, enable the adoption of security best practices. You’ll learn the history Istio and the service mesh concept and discover how you can easily leverage Istio for A/B testing, policy enforcement, secure communication, and observing your microservices deployment. Along the way, we will cover Istio’s ecosystem, the state of the project, where it’s headed, and how you can get involved.

PRO TALK: Glooing and Sqooping your Monolith-Microservice-Serverless Environment
Transitions from monolith to microservices are hard. While the number of blogs and books suggesting strategies to address this problem have grown exponentially, the essential tooling has improved slowly, with limited accessibility to developers.

To change this situation we at Solo.io developed Gloo, a platform to hybridize (or "glue") monolith-microservice-serverless environments and Sqoop, a codless graphQL server. 

Gloo enables multi-architecture and multi-cloud applications, by providing a suite of features to allow “glueing” components from any cloud (AWS, Azure, Google) and any backend (Kubernetes, Serverless, Consul, traditional VM) into a single user-facing API. 

Sqoop aggregates data from multiple backend sources into a single GraphQL API (with zero code written by the user).

Both projects are built on top of the Envoy proxy, and integrates out-of-the-box with other open-source projects including NATS, OpenTracing and more.

In this session, we will learn about Gloo, Sqoop and other open-source projects from Solo.io, and discover how its extensible architecture offers solutions to a broad range of use cases. Warning: lots of live demos will be shown.

PRO TALK: Building Fintech with Microservices and k8s
Capital One has been one of the rare large financial institutions that has been at the forefront of eagerly updating its core systems with cloud-native architecture and committing to developing most new applications using microservice architecture and containers. Having been on this journey for several years now, we can report that it is not for the faint of heart - it is full of dangerous operational time-sinks and genuinely challenging design implications. In this talk we'll share our take-aways covering wide range of important aspects: from team organization to infrastructure to design process, what we have learned and what still remains non-trivial. Spoiler alert - it was largely worth it.
