Learn how to support your application delivery – no matter where you are on the journey from monolithic apps to microservices.
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.
Zipwhip leveraged NGINX Ingress Controller in its AWS container environments to achieve rapid scale, greater traffic visibility, enhanced performance, and significant cost reductions. Learn how you can too.
