First it was VMs, then it was containers, and now service mesh is what’s hot in cloud infrastructure. But that doesn't mean you're dealing with a clean slate. Chances are, you’re not only dealing with containers -- for which Istio was created -- but also virtual machines that are still part of your infrastructure.
In this live demo, Mirantis' cloud architect Bruce Matthews explains how to combine Istio with Virtlet to create a service-mesh-based application that uses both containers and VMs.
In other words, you get to use service mesh without leaving part of your infrastructure behind.
In this demo, you will learn:
- How traffic management with service mesh improves application performance and stability
- The architecture of Istio and how it works
- What lies behind a simple service-mesh-based application you can build yourself
- How to add a VM-based database to the container-based application using Virtlet and Istio
- What you can do with traffic manipulation using Istio, and how to make it happen
Join us for this fast-paced, technical demo on Thursday, June 27. Can't make it on the day? Sign up anyway, and we'll send you the slides and recording.
