Service mesh is a dedicated layer of a company's infrastructure which should simplify communication between services and make it reliable, secure and observable.
In this talk, we'll go deep into Booking.com's case study of introducing service mesh. We will discover the reasons and objectives of the project. Why Envoy was selected as the base rather than other available options. Find out what is the setup and features of the homegrown control plane. We will expand on what service is provided for developers and how they safely deploy potentially dangerous configuration changes. Finally, we will talk about pitfalls met along the way.
