PRO SESSION (MICROSERVICES): Using Envoy Proxy as Your Gateway to Service Mesh

Christian Posta, Global Field CTO

Christian Posta (@christianposta) is Global Field CTO at, former Chief Architect at Red Hat, and well known in the community for being an author (Istio in Action, Manning, Istio Service Mesh, O'Reilly 2018, Microservices for Java Developers, O’Reilly 2016), frequent blogger, speaker, open-source enthusiast and committer on various open-source projects including Istio, Kubernetes, Apache Camel, and many others. Christian has spent time at both enterprises as well as web-scale companies and now helps companies create and deploy large-scale, cloud-native resilient, distributed architectures. He enjoys mentoring, training and leading teams to be successful with distributed systems concepts, microservices, devops, and cloud-native application design.

Microservices with Kubernetes and Service Mesh are patterns in building new applications that decouple dependencies between the application code, infrastructure and how the services should communicate. In this architecture, the network becomes critical for a properly functioning application teams need to consider both North / South traffic (incoming requests from end users to the cluster) and East / West (intra cluster) communication between the services.

In this talk we discuss:
* Changing traffic patterns from edge to service mesh for microservices
* Envoy as the proxy for the modern application network
* New capabilities available to the applications
* Guidance and considerations on how to incrementally adopt Envoy into your infrastructure
