  • eBPF, sidecars, and the future of the service mesh
    8 projects | | 7 Jun 2024
    William: My first pick would be Linkerd. It's a must-have for any Kubernetes cluster. I then lean towards tools that complement Linkerd, like Argo and cert-manager. You're off to a solid start with these three.
  • Optimal JMX Exposure Strategy for Kubernetes Multi-Node Architecture
    2 projects | | 27 Mar 2024
    Leverage a service mesh like Istio or Linkerd to manage communication between microservices within the Kubernetes cluster. These service meshes can be configured to intercept JMX traffic and enforce access control policies. Benefits:
  • Linkerd no longer shipping open source, stable releases

    Looks like CNCF waved them through Graduation anyway, let's look at policies from July 28, 2021 when they were deemed "Graduated"

    All maintainers of the LinkerD project had email addresses. [0] They do list 4 other members of a "Steering Committee", but LinkerD's gives all of the power to maintainers: [1]

    > Ideally, all project decisions are resolved by maintainer consensus. If this is not possible, maintainers may call a vote. The voting process is a simple majority in which each maintainer receives one vote.

    And CNCF Graduation policy says a project must "Have committers from at least two organizations" [2]. So it appears that the CNCF accepted the "Steering Committee" as an acceptable 2nd committer, even though the Governance policy still gave the maintainers all of the power.

    I would like to know if the Steering Committee voted to remove stable releases from an un-biased position acting in the best interest of the project, or if they were simply ignored or not even advised on the decision.

    I'm all for Boyant doing what they need to do to make money and survive as a Company. But at that point my opinion is that they should withdraw the project from the CNCF and stop pretending like the foundation has any influence on the project's governance.


  • Ultimate EKS Baseline Cluster: Part 1 - Provision EKS
    17 projects | | 21 Jul 2023
    From here, we can explore other developments and tutorials on Kubernetes, such as o11y or observability (PLG, ELK, ELF, TICK, Jaeger, Pyroscope), service mesh (Linkerd, Istio, NSM, Consul Connect, Cillium), and progressive delivery (ArgoCD, FluxCD, Spinnaker).
  • Istio moved to CNCF Graduation stage
    13 projects | | 12 Jul 2023 is a much lighter-weight alternative but you do still get some of the fancy things like mtls without needing any manual configuration. Install it, label your namespaces, and let it do it's thing!
  • Custom Authorization
    1 project | /r/linkerd | 14 Feb 2023
    Would it be possible to create a custom extension with the code that authorize traffic based on my custom access token?
  • API release strategies with API Gateway
    5 projects | | 22 Dec 2022
    Open source API Gateway (Apache APISIX and Traefik), Service Mesh (Istio and Linkerd) solutions are capable of doing traffic splitting and implementing functionalities like Canary Release and Blue-Green deployment. With canary testing, you can make a critical examination of a new release of an API by selecting only a small portion of your user base. We will cover the canary release next section.
  • GKE with Consul Service Mesh
    29 projects | | 3 Dec 2022
    I have experimented with other service meshes and I was able to get up to speed quickly: Linkerd = 1 day, Istio = 3 days, NGINX Service Mesh = 5 days, but Consul Connect service mesh took at least 11 days to get off the ground. This is by far the most complex solution available.
