2022-05-14, 16:10–16:40, Gallery

Media Streaming Mesh is a new open-source project which enables real-time media applications to be first class citizens in cloud-native environments.


Kubernetes has been hugely successful as a platform for deploying web applications. Real-time media applications have unique requirements, which thus far have held back their migration to the cloud-native Kubernetes stack.

In this talk I will give an introduction to the Media Streaming Mesh project, which aims to do for real-time media applications what Service Mesh has done for web applications, and which has recently been open-sourced by Cisco.
