Iris Ding held a speaking engagement in Kubecon ShangHai in 2018 and KubCon Europe in 2019. Iris was involved in IBM Webshpere and demonstrated key web services features to worldwide customers. Iris has held multiple Istio workshops and labs demonstrating key features of Istio.
Building the ISTIOD Service Mesh Microkernel
Join this session to learn why the Istio community challenged itself by building a better service mesh architecture modeled after a microkernel architecture. The technical origin of Istio is described in-depth, including the many historical reasons for implementing different components as separate microservices. User feedback has led to an increasingly clear understanding within the community that a single control plane process was worth investigating.
From this session, you will learn how Istio: * Transitioned its services into a microkernel with minimal cost * Transparently migrated human operators into Istio’s new microkernel architecture * Solves many deficiencies in prior service mesh architectures
Iris and Steve, two Istio maintainers, will conclude with a demonstration of ISTIOD.
