Stretching your application from OpenStack into Public cloud

Multiple clouds are a must in today’s IT world to prevent vendor lock-in, provide redundancy, a migration path, and other benefits.   Developer's and IT admins demand that applications, and the micro-services that comprise them, be capable of running in multiple environments.   A service mesh, instantiated by Istio, provides a new paradigm for connecting, managing and securing microservices.   With services running in multiple clouds, service mesh has to be established across the clouds.   In this presentation John and Tim will show how an application can be stretched between two disparate cloud environments--public cloud and an OpenStack based cloud.   The demonstration will show how the service mesh is stretched to fully enable service mesh features for all services and endpoints in both cloud environments. 

What can I expect to learn?

Attendees can expect to learn how applications can securely span multiple cloud environments including OpenStack based clouds and public cloud.  The demonstration will show how Istio enables this flexibility while providing security, tracability and operational advantages.
