Microservices architecture (MSA) has been widely adopted in recent years due to its significant benefits. However, it is equally important to build services that can isolate failures, self-healing, secure service-service communication along with improved tracing and monitoring capabilities. Imagine the effort required to enable these features for dozens of microservice (small application) and hundreds of microservice (enterprise-grade application), it is a humongous effort.

In this talk, Service mesh concept is covered that details how to abstract routing, security and observability implementation from individual services and make it part of a dedicated infrastructure layer. Further, the session explores an open source, cloud agnostic, batteries-included service mesh implementation named Istio. With Istio, we demonstrate how microservice can leverage built-in routing capabilities (circuit-breaker, retry, fault injection, blue-green and canary deployment), securing service communication via access controls and in-depth telemetry support for metrics, monitoring and traces with real application use cases. At last, quick recap of service mesh implementations, its maturity and industry adoption will be shared.
