Krakow, Poland, 31 May - 2 June 2023
Istio ambient service mesh introduces the new “sidecar-less” data plane option. Ambient mesh slices the mesh into two layers, Layer 4 and optional Layer 7, one implemented in Rust and the other in C++ using Envoy proxy. Lin, who is a founding member of Istio, will explain why Istio ambient mesh data plane is architected in two layers, the simplified operation of sidecar-less service mesh while reducing costs, along with why the future of service mesh is sidecar-less. She will demonstrate live how developers and operators can adopt the two layers incrementally and experience the full benefits of the Istio ambient mesh.
Lin is the Director of Open Source at Solo.io and a CNCF ambassador. She has worked on Istio service mesh since 2017 and serves on the Istio Technical Oversight Committee. Previously, she was a Senior Technical Staff Member and Master Inventor at IBM for 15+ years. She is the author of the book "Istio Ambient Explained" and has more than 200 patents to her name.
