Understand how to use service mesh architecture to efficiently manage and safeguard microservices-based applications with the help of examples

Key Features

  • Manage your cloud-native applications easily using service mesh architecture
  • Learn about Istio, Linkerd, and Consul – the three primary open source service mesh providers
  • Explore tips, techniques, and best practices for building secure, high-performance microservices

Book Description

Although microservices-based applications support DevOps and continuous delivery, they can also add to the complexity of testing and observability. The implementation of a service mesh architecture, however, allows you to secure, manage, and scale your microservices more efficiently. With the help of practical examples, this book demonstrates how to install, configure, and deploy an efficient service mesh for microservices in a Kubernetes environment.

You'll get started with a hands-on introduction to the concepts of cloud-native application management and service mesh architecture, before learning how to build your own Kubernetes environment. While exploring later chapters, you'll get to grips with the three major service mesh providers: Istio, Linkerd, and Consul. You'll be able to identify their specific functionalities, from traffic management, security, and certificate authority through to sidecar injections and observability.

By the end of this book, you will have developed the skills you need to effectively manage modern microservices-based applications.

What you will learn

  • Compare the functionalities of Istio, Linkerd, and Consul
  • Become well-versed with service mesh control and data plane concepts
  • Understand service mesh architecture with the help of hands-on examples
  • Work through hands-on exercises in traffic management, security, policy, and observability
  • Set up secure communication for microservices using a service mesh
  • Explore service mesh features such as traffic management, service discovery, and resiliency

Who this book is for

This book is for solution architects and network administrators, as well as DevOps and site reliability engineers who are new to the cloud-native framework. You will also find this book useful if you’re looking to build a career in DevOps, particularly in operations. Working knowledge of Kubernetes and building microservices that are cloud-native is necessary to get the most out of this book.
