Individual microservices are relatively easy to develop, but managing a distributed system composed of microservices is never a simple task. Kubernetes helps, but it falls short of providing everything such a system needs. This is where the Istio Service Mesh comes in. Hopefully, before you run your microservices in production, you'll realize you need things like traffic splitting, automatic connection retries, timeouts and failovers, distributed metrics, tracing and logging, and ideally also secure communication and authentication between your services. By introducing Istio and a few related tools into your architecture, you get all of that and more. And you get most of it without changing your code at all. In this talk, you'll learn how Istio can enhance your microservices-based system. After learning about Istio's features and concepts, you'll see a demonstration of how Istio makes it trivial to monitor all your services with Prometheus and Grafana, debug them using Jaeger distributed tracing and observe them using Kiali.
