With the increased pace of digital transformation, applications started getting broken down into microservices that implement focused chunks of functionality. As these applications grew, so did the number of microservices and communication between microservices. This inter-service communication at scale soon became complex to manage. Lots of issues came up. Load balancing. Triaging and resolving problems.
The service mesh addresses this by creating an inter-service communication infrastructure layer that takes charge of the message routing through a set of side car proxies that run alongside each microservice. Linkerd, Envio, Istio, Consul are some of the protocols available today. Locating bottlenecks, monitoring and triaging, and load balancing are all now handled by the service mesh.
Developers are free to focus on the business functionality without having to worry about the networking tasks and functions.
If you have questions about how to deploy microservices and service mesh and make it work, this webinar is for you. In the webinar, we will:
Join us and learn about getting the most of your microservices deployment for raising enterprise agility using the service mesh to provide monitoring, scalability, and high availability.
