The migration from monolith to microservices has empowered engineering teams to develop modular code quickly and efficiently. While offering many benefits, this movement has also introduced challenges-- namely, how to enable fast, secure communication across microservices.

One solution to container networking for polyglot microservices is the sidecar model, in which a separate process that manages all network traffic is deployed alongside your microservice. In this talk, we’ll explore the benefits of sidecars and see how they are implemented through two open-source projects: Envoy and Istio. By examining how these technologies could be used in both Kubernetes and Cloud Foundry, users will be introduced to the true potential of sidecars.
