Deploying greenfield JVM microservices on Kubernetes on-premise with a service mesh WITHOUT Openshift or CloudFoundry
Submitted by Akshay Mathur (@awkshwayrd) on Apr 16, 2019
Lessons learned from deploying open source Kubernetes in a traditional financial data center without a supported vendor implementation (no IBM, RedHat, or Google support)
Intended audience - anyone interested in Kubernetes
Expected outcome - A good discussion around the philosophy and operational capabilities needed to deploy microservices on-prem on Kubernetes
How to architect the platform to meet specific non-functional requirements - IDAM, observability,
traceability, configuration management, etc. The pain points you don’t typically face when you provision Kubernetes on GKE How to leverage a service mesh such as Istio for inter-service interactions. How to discover the DevOps model for new greenfield microservices.
The tools needed to deploy JVM based microservices on Kubernetes.
