Now Available - The Enterprise Path to Service Mesh Architectures
As someone interested in modern software design, you have likely heard of service mesh architectures in context of microservices. Service meshes introduce a new layer into modern infrastructures, offering the potential for creating robust and scalable applications and granular control over them. Is a service mesh right for you?
My newly published short book, The Enterprise Path to Service Mesh Architectures, helps answer common questions on service mesh architectures through the lens of a large enterprise and addresses how to evaluate your organization’s readiness, factors to consider when building new applications and converting existing applications to best leverage a service mesh, and offers insight on deployment architectures used to get you there.
This isn’t the only O’Reilly title available on the topic of service meshes, however. Before authoring The Enterprise Path to Service Mesh Architectures I happily provided technical review of two other excellent O’Reilly titles on the topic of service meshes: Christian Posta‘s and Burr Sutter‘s Introducing Istio Service Mesh for Microservices and George Miranda‘s The Service Mesh. These three complement each other well, helping educate adopters and onlookers alike:
For as well as these three short books cover the space and specific technologies, much room is left for a deeper, post-Istio-1.0 book. And its exactly such a book that I and my two coauthors, Matt Baldwin and Zack Butcher, have set forth to produce: Istio: Up and Running. There’s clear underlap and complement in these short books and our forthcoming title.
