Streaming Microservices with Apache Kafka, Kubernetes and Service Mesh (Envoy, Istio, Linkerd)

Microservice architectures are not free lunch! Microservices need to be decoupled, flexible, operationally transparent, data aware and elastic. Most material from last years only discusses point-to-point architectures with tightly coupled and non-scalable technologies like REST / HTTP. This blog post takes a look at cutting edge technologies like Apache Kafka, Kubernetes, Envoy, Linkerd and Istio to implement a cloud-native service mesh to solve these challenges and bring microservices to the next
