The advent of service meshes can be traced back to Linkerd, a Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) project. Now, as Linkerd’s adoption curve continues to accelerate, a number of other options have emerged that allow for the management and scaling of an often vast network of microservices and the applications within them. Istio, of course, is among the leading alternatives. The state of Istio and services meshes was the main topic during a panel discussion for this podcast, hosted by Alex Williams, founder and editor-in-chief, and Joab Jackson, managing editing, of The New Stack; at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon North America 2018. The attendees, who were also treated to a pancake breakfast during the event, were able to ask questions about service meshes and Istio to the panel of subject matter experts consisting of: - Jason McGee, IBM fellow, vice president, CTO, IBM Cloud Platform; - Ken Owens, vice president, digital native architecture, Mastercard; - Jennifer Lin, director of product management, Google Cloud; - Simon Richard, analyst, Gartner; - Pere Monclus, vice president and CTO network and security BU, VMware.
