Secure, monitor, and test your cloud-native applications using the Service Mesh architecture
- Manage your cloud-native applications with ease using the service mesh architecture
- Learn about Istio, Linkerd, and Consul - the three primary open-source service mesh providers
- Includes tips and best practices for building secure, high-performance microservices
A microservices-based application helps DevOps and continuous delivery, but it adds the complexity of testing and observability. Implementation of a service mesh architecture allows you to secure, manage, and scale your microservices more efficiently. Through practical examples, this book shows you how to install, configure and deploy an efficient service mesh for microservices in a Kubernetes environment.
With this book, you will get a hands-on introduction to the concept of cloud-native application management and the service mesh architecture. It introduces you to three major service mesh providers, namely Istio, Linkerd, and Consul. You will explore their capabilities such as traffic management, monitoring, security, telemetry, certificate authority, sidecar injections, observability and many more.
By the end of this book, you will develop the necessary skills to manage modern microservices-based applications.
