Not every application should follow the microservices architecture. But for those that do, how do you solve problems relating to service discovery, load balancing, resilience, security, observability, and traffic management? Spring Cloud projects have adopted solutions that grew out of Netflix's journey to microservices. Istio on the other hand grew with Kubernetes, and leverages Envoy proxy, which grew out of difficulties managing microservices at Lyft. This talk makes the case that Istio has certain design advantages and is worth a closer look. In this talk, Eitan explores Istio's design and how it just might be a perfect foundation for running your microservices.
