A service mesh is a tool for adding observability, security, and reliability features to applications by inserting these features at the platform layer rather than the application layer.

In this talk, Daniel Virassamy will go through the fundamental concepts of Service Mesh, different tools out there, and how to get started with them. Included is an extensive demo covering how to install & deploy Istio Service Mesh using Mirantis Lens, the Kubernetes IDE and Mirantis Container Cloud.
