    > I suspect if a Service Mesh is ultimately shown to have broad value, one will make it's way into the K8S core

    I'm not so sure. I suspect it'll follow the same roadmap as Gateway API, which it already kind of is with the Service Mesh Interface (

  • Service Mesh Considerations
    7 projects | | 14 Dec 2022
    It is very common that a service mesh deploys a control plane and a data plane. The control plane does what you might expect; it controls the service mesh and gives you the ability to interact with it. Many service meshes implement the Service Mesh Interface (SMI) which is an API specification to standardize the way cluster operators interact with and implement features.
  • Kubernetes: Cross-cluster traffic scheduling - Access control
    2 projects | | 11 Dec 2022
    Before we start, let's review the SMI Access Control Specification. There are two forms of traffic policies in osm-edge: Permissive Mode and Traffic Policy Mode. The former allows services in the mesh to access each other, while the latter requires the provision of the appropriate traffic policy to be accessible.

  • Kubernetes State Of The Union β€” KubeCon 2019, San Diego
    3 projects | /r/kubernetes | 21 Mar 2022
    I started on Monday, attending ServiceMeshCon2019. My guesstimate is that about 1000 people attended it. I believe Service Mesh is playing such a crucial role in scaling cloud native technologies that large scale cloud-native deployments may not be possible without service mesh. Just like you cannot really succeed in deploying a microservices based application without a microservices orchestration engine, like Kubernetes, you cannot scale the size and capacity of a microservices-based application without service mesh. That’s what makes it so compelling to see all the service mesh creators β€” Istio, Linkerd, Consul, Kuma β€” and listen to them. There was also a lot of discussion of SMI (Service Mesh Interface) β€” a common interface among all services mesh. The panel at the end of the day included all the major service mesh players, and some very thought provoking questions were asked and answered by the panel.
