Service Mesh 101

About this Course


Service mesh has evolved as a core component of a CaaS platform. It enables fine-grained control of traffic among various microservices while providing insights into the health of each microservice. Service mesh complements container-native networking. It focuses on east-west traffic while the north-south traffic is handled by the core networking layer. Service mesh adds a proxy to each of the microservice which intercepts the inbound and outbound traffic. Since it is placed close to each microservice, it can track the health of the service. In this lesson, you will learn about what a service mesh is and how it works.
