This post is the last in a three-part series about deploying Kong as a service mesh. The first post discussed how we define the term “service mesh” here at Kong, and the second post explained the architectural pattern used to deploy Kong as a mesh. In this post, we will talk about the new features and configuration options we added to give Kong its mesh capabilities.

In the modern SaaS world, observability is key to running software reliability, managing risks and deriving business value out of the code that you’re shipping. To measure how your service is performing, you record Service Level Indicators (SLIs) or metrics, and alert whenever performance, correctness or availability is affected.

This ebook explains how Kubernetes is modernizing the microservices architecture. Included are a deep dive into the history of Kubernetes and containers, the technical and organizational benefits of using Kubernetes for container orchestration, as well as considerations for adopting it.
Containers enable microservice architectures by making it easy to develop, package, and run microservices in an efficient, run-anywhere format. The mutually reinforcing trends of microservices and containerization have fueled the adoption of Kubernetes, which in turn drove the proliferation of a cloud-native tooling and the formation of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation.
In this presentation, Chris Richardson describes the essential characteristics of the microservice architecture. You will learn about the benefits and drawbacks of the microservice architecture and when it makes sense to use it. Chris also covers how the microservice architecture is not a silver bullet.
Keeping things small is one of the best things you can do for yourself and your team. Almost everything we've seen in the evolution of software and systems points to one, fundamental truth: small things are more manageable than big things. Small iterations are better iterations. Small methods are better methods. Small teams are better teams.
