Session Name: Service Mesh Past, Present, and Future with Envoy Proxy and WebAssembly
"Service Mesh has emerged as the latest cloud-native technology in the microservices stack -- specifically designed to solve the service-to-service communication challenges of distributed applications by abstracting the networking logic from the application code and managing it separately. This abstraction creates new challenges in addition to opportunities to better observe, secure, and extend the application through the data plane.
This talk will cover the role of Envoy proxy, taking service mesh across clusters and clouds, and the potential of WebAssembly to take Envoy beyond C++."
