Hanna Prinz: Service Meshes—Istio, Linkerd…or No Mesh at All?

Service meshes like Istio and Linkerd 2 solve many of the problems of current microservice applications. They add observability, routing, resilience, and security features as a dedicated infrastructure layer. And communication between applications can be monitored, configured, and secured without adding or changing application code. Sounds too good to be true? Indeed, a service mesh comes with a price: mental complexity, increased resource consumption, and latency being the main challenges. Hanna Prinz discusses meaningful use cases for service meshes, taking you through their drawbacks and the differences between various implementations.
