Service mesh implementations from open-source communities like Istio, Linkerd, and Consul have left us spoilt for choice. Sam Newman has defined “cloud native applications” as those applications that leverage the capabilities of the cloud-native platforms on which they’re deployed. So what happens if you deploy to a Kubernetes-based platform on-premises and leverage Istio for your service mesh, but also deploy to AWS infrastructure (including EKS) for your public-cloud solution? AWS has an out-of-the box service mesh called App Mesh so should you just leverage that? In this session, you will look at the harsh reality of solving service-to-service communication between services, between clusters, and potentially between platforms/clouds and how things like security, observability, and routing can be accomplished in this hybrid environment.
