LFN Dev Forum: Building Cloud Native, Web Scale, Deployable VNFs with Service Mesh Architecture

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In the Cloud Native communities, 2018 is turning out to be the Year of Service Mesh. In this talk, we will introduce to the audience of What's and Why's of the mirco-service architecture based on a Service Mesh, the competing open source options of Service Mesh (e.g. Istio / Envoy, Conduit, NginMesh ...), and the challenges we need to solve to implement a service mesh based micro-service architecture for CSPs, e.g. container networking choices, supporting stateful VNFs, service policy interfaces etc. We will weave in some of the ongoing work in the OPNFV Clover project addressing these challenges along the way, but the content is broadly applicable to anyone interested in learning about how to build web scale, deployable, cloud native network services with a service mesh architecture. This will be equally applicable to developers and operators.
