Presented at Maritime DevCon 2019 https://maritimedevcon.ca/
A mesh is defined as an “interlaced structure” and this exactly describes what we are building when we create distributed systems. The pieces talk to and depend on one another. Managing, monitoring, and controlling the ether between our services is a daunting task and one that can lead to failure scenarios if mismanaged. In this talk, Josh Comer will explore how adding a Service Mesh to our systems can not only make them more resilient but flexible and transparent. With first-hand stories of distributed failure, Josh will discuss how a mesh could have avoided these scenarios. Hopefully, at the end, you will agree that if you could only take one technology to a distributed desert island, it would be a Service Mesh.
