Understanding eBPF in Sevice Mesh with Ahmed

Why have we not created a service mesh in the kernel before? Some people have been semi-jokingly stating that kube-proxy is the original service mesh. However, it is not enough. So what's next? Since eBPF code can be inserted at runtime into an existing Linux kernel similar to a Linux kernel module, but unlike a kernel module, it can be done in a secure and portable manner. This allows for eBPF implementation to continue to evolve with the service mesh community.

Day 0 Service Mesh: A Simplified Approach for Building Microservices

The acceleration of microservices and containerized workloads has revolutionized software delivery at scale. However, these distributed architectures also introduce significant complexity around networking, security, and observability. As development teams grappled with reliability and governance issues, the service mesh pattern emerged to simplify management.

7 Signs You Need a Service Mesh

In the ever-evolving landscape of modern applications and cloud native architectures, the need for efficient, scalable, and secure communication between services is paramount. Enter the service mesh — a versatile platform designed to address various challenges in securing, connecting, and observing microservices. In this post, we’ll cover seven signs that indicate it may be time for your organization to adopt a service mesh.

EBPF, Service Mesh And Sidecar

The operating system is like the boss of your computer, handling security, networking, and keeping an eye on what’s happening. But tweaking or improving the core part of the operating system, called the kernel, is a bit tricky because it’s mainly focused on keeping things stable and secure. Most cool new stuff usually happens outside the core system, in what we call the user space. That’s where people add extra features or functions.
