Service mesh technologies have gained significant interest in the past year. We often hear or read the words “Service Mesh” in blog posts or videos nowadays. But most of these don’t explain what the “Service Mesh” really is. In this talk, Anubhav Mishra helps us understand the components that make up a “Service Mesh” and how “Service Mesh” can help developers and operators adopt smart networking techniques to empower their organizations.
Anubhav Mishra will examine:
1. The history of the term “Service Mesh”.
2. What it takes to create a service mesh control plane and a data plane.
3. Responsibilities of each of those components and why they are critical to the overall functioning of a service mesh.
4. Real-world example of a service mesh in action that connects services running in VMs and containers securely.

Service mesh: beyond hypeThe goal of a service mesh is to provide service to service communication along with some higher level features like observability, policy enforcement, retries, back off and security. Most service meshes have two components: a control plane and a data plane. The control plane is responsible for making decisions about where to send the traffic and to configure the data plane. The data plane provides the ability to forward requests from the applications. In this presentation, we will take a look at the history of how the term “Service Mesh” came about. We will describe what it takes to create a service mesh control plane and a data plane. We will explore the responsibilities of each of those components and why they are critical to the overall functioning of a service mesh. We will conclude with a real-world example of a service mesh in action that connects services running in VMs and containers securely.
