Service Mesh — kilometer 30 in a microservice marathon

Distributed applications like microservices shift some of their complexities into the interaction of services. Such a service mesh, which can have hundreds of runtime instances, is very difficult to manage. You will be concerned with some of the following questions:

  • which service will be requested by which other services in which version and how often depending on the request content?
  • how can you test the interaction and how can you replace single services with new ones?

These and other questions will be discussed in this session. Tools to make your live easier with a service mesh will also be introduced.
