Migrating Applications With Service Mesh
Jan 21, 2020
This demo is a migration story: It shows how to bridge the gap between brownfield and greenfield applications with Consul service mesh.
Developer Advocate, HashiCorp
At the TechReckoning Fest, an online conference, HashiCorp developer advocate Rosemary Wang gives a demo on how to leverage Consul service mesh for connecting, securing, and deploying greenfield and brownfield applications from on-premises datacenters to cloud-based Kubernetes environments, using traffic splitting for progressive delivery.
In this demo, you'll learn:
- How to configure two existing services inside of a service mesh
- How to enable Consul service mesh for your new greenfield service in Kubernetes
- How to join together VMs and Kubernetes clusters
- How to use Consul's mesh gateways to allow traffic to transparently and securely be routed from datacenter another.
- How to migrate traffic from a service in one datacenter to a new service running in your modern Kubernetes environment using traffic splitting, which can be based on the presence of an HTTP header to do A/B testing or based on path routing.
You can follow this documentation of the demo.
