eBPF, sidecars, and the future of the service mesh, with William Morgan

Service meshes and the community's opinion of them have changed drastically over the years.

From being perceived as unnecessary, complicated and bloated, they matured into security and observability powerhouses (while still retaining much of their complexity).

In this KubeFM episode, William deep dives into the world of service meshes and explains a few of the technical choices and trade-offs of service meshes in simple terms.

You will learn:

  • What is a service mesh and its design (i.e. control plane and data plane).

  • How Ambient mesh departs from the traditional sidecar model and how it affects reliability and security.

  • Why there's more than just eBPF in sidecarless service meshes and the limitation of this technology.

  • The direct costs (compute) and human factors involved in operating a service mesh.
