Building Resilient Microservices with Istio and Red Hat OpenShift Service Mesh (DO328) teaches students installation, service monitoring, service management, and service resilience of Red Hat OpenShift® Service Mesh.
Openshift created an enterprise-ready, multi-tenant platform that made deploying and scaling microservice applications efficient and easily repeatable. But as these architectures become larger and more complex, defining how these services interact with each other becomes increasingly difficult. Red Hat OpenShift Service Mesh comprises 3 products—Istio, Jaeger, and Kiali—that facilitate service interaction management, provide service tracing, and create a visual representation of communication pathways.
This course is based on Red Hat OpenShift® Container Platform 4.4 and Red Hat OpenShift Service Mesh 1.1.
Course content summary
- Install Red Hat OpenShift Service Mesh on an OpenShift cluster.
- Apply release strategies by controlling service traffic.
- Build service resilience with load balancing and failovers.
- Test service resilience with chaos testing.
- Enforce service security.
- Observe, measure, and trace network traffic with OpenShift Service Mesh.
This course is designed for developers who want to deploy and scale microservices applications.
- Attending Red Hat Application Development II: Implementing Microservice Architectures (DO283VT) or demonstrating equivalent experience in creating microservice applications is recommended, but not required
- Attending Red Hat OpenShift I: Containers & Kubernetes (DO180VT) and Red Hat OpenShift Development II: Containerizing Applications (DO288VT), and passing the Red Hat Certified Specialist in OpenShift Application Development exam (EX288), or possessing basic OpenShift experience, is strongly recommended
Delegates will learn how to
You can use the concepts in this course to simplify service interactions and manage them efficiently. You will learn how to install and configure OpenShift Service Mesh to define, monitor, and manage service interaction within microservice architectures. This course is intended to illustrate the ease of OpenShift Service Mesh’s “sidecar” approach and to highlight the product’s benefits of service resilience and monitoring.
Impact on the organization
Employing microservice architectures with OpenShift and OpenShift Service Mesh enable organizations to improve application resilience and scalability, while decreasing developer overhead. Teams can reduce time to market and improve insights into their microservice architecture by being able to visualize and trace data flow throughout their applications. With these insights, organizations can optimally allocate resources and quickly identify defects in specific microservices applications.
