DevOpsDays Detroit 2018: Service Mesh for Microservices
Armon Dadgar explains why we need service discovery, service configuration, and service segmentation if we hope to manage microservices effectively.
Founder & Co-CTO, HashiCorp
As more applications move from the monolithic realm to service-oriented architectures like microservices, networking becomes much harder with so many components in an architecture. Managing and scaling those service-to-service communication patterns in a world of elastic scale, dynamic IP addresses, ephemeral infrastructure, and higher failure rates is impossible without new tooling approaches.
The service mesh concept is a popular approach to solving these challenges. It involves service discovery, centralized configuration, and secure service segmentation.
In this talk, HashiCorp co-founder and CTO Armon Dadgar discusses how Consul implements the service mesh concept.
