Multi-cloud is increasingly being made as a strategic business decision to avoid cloud lock-in. Changing from one cloud provider to another also leads to a multi-cloud situation, at least in the transitional period. But there can also be other reasons for a multi-cloud strategy, such as different security zones, multi-tenancy, availability, etc. In a multi-cloud environment, cross-cluster communication should be encrypted, take place locally if possible, and be implemented with the appropriate resilience patterns. In this session, the possibilities for building a multi-mesh will be presented with the help of Istio, as an extension to Kubernetes. The topology and functionalities of the multi-mesh (cross cluster mTLS, locality load balancing, resilience) are explained in detail with concrete examples.
