High Availability Microservices: Load Balancing In The World of Ingress and Service Mesh
DevOps, Containers, Open Cloud Software Architecture Theatre
One certainty in the world of microservices is that these new architectures don’t reduce network and application traffic. In contrast, the volume of application traffic going over the virtual microservices wire grows exponentially with every new service that comes online. API and service control traffic over the control plane; scheduling traffic and policy routing over the management plane; ingress and container-to-container traffic over the data plane...the more agile our service delivery becomes, the more complexity we bring to data on the wire. In this presentation, we’ll discuss the current state of solutions available to manage, control, and deliver microservices application traffic without sacrificing the core tenets of application performance and availability.
