Our Book Has Been Released! Introducing Istio Service Mesh for Microservices
Many many thanks to all of the reviewers who took the time to give feedback and to Red Hat for sponsoring my time—especially Burr Sutter and the talented folks at O’Reilly who helped coordinate the effort and make it come to fruition.
The book covers the following topics:
- What is a service mesh?
- Understanding Istio and the importance of its capabilities in a microservices architecture
- How to do the following with Istio:
- Resilience patterns
- Routing patterns
- Chaos testing
- Telemetry collection with tracing, metrics, and Grafana
This book should be a nice quick intro to Istio. Please take a look at Istio.io for more information. The book is based on a hands-on workshop the wonderful Red Hat Developers team put together. Find the latest version of the workshop as well as the branch from the book.
We have printed books to give away at Red Hat Summit 2018 in San Francisco. The conference will be May 8th–10th at the Moscone Center. We’ll also be doing a handful of microservices events across North America, which should be another opportunity to get printed copies. Or, reach out to me (@christianposta) and we’ll find a way to ship you a printed copy.
Also stay tuned for the “Istio in Action” book that I’ll be writing for Manning.
