A service mesh is an infrastructure layer that allows you to manage communication between your application's microservices. As more developers work with microservices, service meshes have evolved to make that work easier and more effective by consolidating common management and administrative tasks in a distributed setup.

In this session I will show you how you can set up a Service Mesh with Istio on Kubernetes and run a Micro Services application written in .NET and C#. You will discover how we can utilize the service mesh to have different deployment strategies and way to secure your communication between micro services.

You will learn:

  • What a service mesh is
  • How to set this up on Kubernetes
  • How to use the Service Mesh Capabilities like Deployment strategies, chaos engineering and securing your services
