I am a Developer advocate at solo.io, and a Community evangelist running Keep Up as well as the DevOps community to empower students as well as professionals to achieve success in their careers. I am actively participating in various conferences as a speaker and panelist to bring awareness around DevOps, Security, and Application networking.
This talk and lecture are dedicated to helping those transform their careers by generating more awareness around patterns and concepts that stay the same and what is transferrable, to more modern approaches.
"Abstract: Every service mesh, including Istio, uses a sidecar proxy as its data plane. With this pattern, a mesh can intercept and enhance the capability of networking communication on behalf of an application. However, this sidecar deployment pattern comes with a set of challenges which include operational cost and complexity. With the advent of eBPF in modern kernels, and some coordination with the Linux networking capabilities, we can remove the need to have a sidecar and adopt a transparent approach. In this talk we dive into the future of Istio to show how Istio can run in a ambient mode while maintaining the features of Istio running in a standard mode."
