Kubernetes brings promises of application modernization and agile applications development and deployment, but it also brings new challenges in managing these environments. Nowhere are these challenges more of an issue than with traffic management and security of microservice environments, especially in those which require high-volume, high-reliability, and high-security. But the good news is that you’re not alone: These challenges impact everyone moving to Kubernetes, and there are solutions to make traffic management and security in Kubernetes microservice environments easier. Come join NGINX Service Mesh engineers to talk about NGINX Service Mesh and tools available for your microservice traffic management challenges. This session will be an engineering round-table where we'll have an open discussion about service mesh use cases, demos, and a Q&A with the engineers. Join us to talk all things mesh, the need for ingress/egress traffic management within a mesh, and some best practice guidelines with microservice traffic management.
