This practical eBook explains how a service mesh provides a configurable infrastructure layer that makes service-to-service communication flexible, reliable, and fast.
A service mesh is a component of orchestration tools for containerized environments such as Kubernetes, responsible for routing traffic, defining and enforcing service-to-service mTLS policies, and providing visibility into application availability and security.
A sidecar is a separate container that runs alongside an application container in a Kubernetes pod. It offloads functions required by all apps within a service mesh (SSL/mTLS, traffic routing, and high availability) from the apps themselves.
An Ingress controller is a specialized load balancer for Kubernetes environments. It accepts traffic from outside the Kubernetes platform, and load balances it to Kubernetes pods (containers). It monitors pod status and automatically updates load-balancing rules as necessary.
Kubernetes is an open source container orchestration platform. It provides a complete platform for scaling and managing applications that are deployed in containers.
A container is a virtualization technology designed to create and support a portable form factor for applications. In other words, containers make it easy to deploy an application on a range of different platforms.
