Abstract

Cross-cluster / VPC / Data Center connectivity is a huge problem. Current solutions are clunky and unreliable, using VPNs, DirectConnects, or sending everything out to the internet and back through the ingress layer. Some solutions have been attempted with Service Meshes, but these all involve a shared control plane, causing bit problems for latency, security, and reliability.

In this talk, Matt will describe and demonstrate what he believes to be the correct approach; separate Service Meshes, with their own blast radii, sending traffic between each other as and when necessary. The configuration needed for this approach isn’t free yet, but you’ll be given a step-by-step guide to it, and shown tools that automate the pain away.
