Strava uses Linkerd to avoid service outages
Strava has been running Linkerd in production for over a year, and almost every internal app uses it for service discovery and routing. From incident response workflows to candidate deployments, Linkerd plays an integral part throughout Strava’s infrastructure stack. In this talk, J Evans, Infrastructure Engineer at Strava will describe Strava’s real-world use case for Linkerd. He will describe how they use Linkerd’s Prometheus and Statsd integrations to respond to service outages, and how these observability tools along with other Linkerd features can even be used to avoid such outages in the first place.
