We're rounding off 2017 with the last Cloud Native London meetup of the year! James and Adnan will be our guides, exploring the life of cloud native organisations and digging deep into GPU-accelerated workloads. As it's the holiday season, we'll also be providing some rather special food, drinks and general merriment, thanks to our sponsors StorageOS, Tecknuovo, Contino and Skills Matter. Cloud Native London won't be back until February, so make sure to get your slot now!
Istio is a service mesh to connect, manage and secure services running on Kubernetes. We discuss some of the core concepts of Istio and how adopting a service mesh can help you reduce development time, be more resilient to outages and aid in debugging a micro-service environment.
Nick Joyce is a partner at Real Kinetic where he helps companies build scalable systems and organisations. He has been working with the cloud for the past 10 years and is an advocate for cloud native technologies such as containers and Kubernetes.
When we talk about "cloud native" we are usually talking about a set of tools that let us build applications that really take advantage of the power of the cloud. But what are the lessons we can draw from this for how we think about our organisations, and how do we spread this power out to those who aren't directly building applications?
