Overview

Control, manage, trace, monitor, and test your microservices with Red Hat OpenShift Service Mesh
Openshift created an enterprise-ready, multi-tenant platform that made deploying and scaling microservice applications efficient and 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 three products, Istio, Jaeger, and Kiali that facilitate managing service interaction, provide service tracing, and create a visual representation of communication pathways. This offering is an introduction to Red Hat OpenShift Service Mesh that teaches students installation, service monitoring, service management, and service resilience with Red Hat OpenShift Service Mesh.
The Red Hat Certified Specialist in Building Resilient Microservices exam (EX328) is included in this offering.
