Managing Microservices with Istio Service Mesh

Thursday, 3 October, 2019 - 14:0017:30

Rafik Harabi, Innovsquare


Managing disparate microservices at scale is a real challenge for Ops and SRE teams. The workshop will explain and demonstrate the service mesh patterns implemented by Istio using the same declarative approach as kubernetes to implement microservices concerns without affecting your services.


  1. Participants should be able to install gcloud CLI on their laptops.
  2. Participants should have a Google Cloud Platform account. If you don’t yet have one, you could create one using Google Cloud Free Tier.
