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.
- Rosemary WangDeveloper 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.
