IBM Developer Event: Managing Kubernetes Traffic with Istio

June 17 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm EDT

NYC Blockchain Center welcomes new founding member – IBM Developer Team and we are happy to cohost their series of developer events.

About the event:

Developers are moving away from large monolithic apps in favor of small, focused microservices that speed up implementation and improve resiliency. Microservices and containers changed application design and deployment patterns, but along with them brought challenges like service discovery, routing, failure handling, and visibility to microservices.

“Service mesh” architecture was born to handle these features. Applications are getting decoupled internally as microservices, and the responsibility of maintaining coupling between these microservices is passed to the service mesh.Istio, a joint collaboration between IBM, Google and Lyft provides an easy way to create a service mesh that will manage many of these complex tasks automatically, without the need to modify the microservices themselves.

In this meetup we will see how istio can be used to manage traffic in a demo application running microservices.

If you attend, you can expect to learn:

* Why kubernetes needs “service mesh”
* How Istio improves network traffic management
* How to use Istio
