Talk presenting the concepts of Service Mesh, Serverless and Tracing as simply as possible. This was presented at the Paris Container Day 2018 on 26th June 2018, in front of 100 people.
Below is the abstract of the talk:
Some weeks ago, I was at the KubeCon + CloudNativeCon EU. 3 main topics that
are not as well-known as they should be were mentioned a lot:
- Service Mesh
- Modern observability / Tracing
For most people, these topics are really fuzzy since they are somewhat recent.
It's easy to wonder what Service Mesh offers compared to traditional Load Balancing, what technology you should pick among Linkerd, Conduit, Envoy, Istio, when they all seem to do the same things. For Serverless and FaaS, one could wonder what they bring to the table when we already have orchestrators and containers that we can deploy in one command. And finally, it's easy to get lost among all the monitoring paradigms: metrics, logs, tracing... why everyone and every product is onboarding some tracing capabilities recently?
We'll talk about all of this during these 20min. It may seem a lot, but we'll go straight to the point as "what's the need it's looking to address and why should I care"
