The challenges of exposing and connecting microservices


Denis Jannot (

In this presentation, I'll cover the common challenges people are facing when they expose and connect micro services.
I'll review the different options to expose services running on Kubernetes (Ingress vs API gateway) and to manage service to service communications (API gateway vs Service Mesh).
I'll also discuss the additional complexity introduced when services are spread across multiple environments (multiple Kubernetes clusters, Service Meshes, ...).
Finally, I'll introduce several Open Source projects (Gloo Edge, Gloo Mesh, Web Assembly, ...) we are working on at to tackle these challenges.
This talk includes a few live demos.
