KubeCon+CloudNativeCon North America 2017 Buoyant hosted it’s first live Linkerd community meeting at KubeCon. In this video you will hear from three customers about how they’re using Linkerd in production. Then Oliver Gould takes a deeper dive into Conduit, and concludes with an engineering panel ask-me-anything.
After about eight years, Credit Karma had built up an impressive tech infrastructure…based on a PHP monolith. Over the past 18 months they’ve (carefully) adopted Docker, Linkerd, Consul, Kubernetes, and more as they shifted to microservices in order to enable continued engineering innovation. This is the story of Their evolution from monolith to microservices, starting with their own homegrown tools. The talk will cover our iterations from basic plumbing to dynamic service discovery; why they’ve started using Linkerd and selected Kubernetes; and how they’ve evolved their systems step by step while continuing to serve 75 million members.
Keynote KubeCon+CloudNativeCon North America 2017 Oliver Gould gives a live demo of Conduit, the open source service mesh for Kubernetes, at KubeCon+CloudNativeCon North America 2017.
With containers becoming the new standard to building microservice based applications for production, users are leveraging the service mesh to solve common issues with routing, re-routing for graceful degradation as services fail, secure inter-service communication and rate limiting between services. Join us for a live interactive session where our panel of experts from IBM, Google, Envoy, Linkerd and RedHat will address your most challenging inquiries around microservice and service mesh!
In this talk, William Morgan describes the service mesh, a runtime infrastructure layer that’s rapidly rising to prominence with the advent of open source projects like Istio, Envoy, and Linkerd. We trace the evolution of the service mesh model through three-tiered apps and “fat clients” to the modern, sidecar-based implementations, compare and contrast with ESBs and API gateways, and show that, as with most “new” technology, the ideas and principles behind the service mesh have been around for a long time.
How do you build a system capable of handling billions of events per day in a way that’s secure, reliable, and delivers a best-in-class user experience? Join ForeSee Senior Director Akash Sagar and Buoyant engineer Andrew Seigner as they describe how ForeSee used Linkerd to build a scalable, performant, and reliable cloud native software platform that powers the premier customer experience analytics product in the world. In this webinar, you will:
SAN FRANCISCO, CA — (Globenewswire — July 11, 2017) — Buoyant, the company behind the popular open source Linkerd project and creator of the new “service mesh” category of cloud infrastructure software, today announced the close of $10.5 million in Series A funding. The round was led by Benchmark Capital, with additional participation from #Angels, a female-led investment group of current and former Twitter executives. Also joining the round were previous investors A.
Buoyant engineer Alex Leong teaches linkerd 101, an live, online class about linkerd. We’ll cover basic concepts, request flow, dtabs/routing, and deployment models for linkerd, our service mesh for cloud-native applications. Learn more about linkerd at linkerd.io and slack.linkerd.io.
