Workshop: Smart Deployment Patterns with Istio Service Mesh

Deploying microservices to Kubernetes (and other cloud-native platforms) is only easy in theory.

The inherent complexity of distributed systems requires new techniques of observability, analysis

and resilience. Service mesh is an infrastructure-based architectural pattern that makes these

techniques possible in a smart, centralised way.

Things we’ll get our hands dirty with:

  • building Docker images for our app
  • deploying app versions to Kubernetes
  • deploying and configuring Istio
  • monitoring app performance with prometheus
  • implementing the following deployment strategies:
    dark launch
    traffic mirroring
