Tetrate Service Bridge with Zack Butcher

Microservice architecture has become a ubiquitous design choice.  Application developers typically have neither the training nor the interest in implementing low-level security features into their software.  For this and many other reasons, the notion of a service mesh has been introduced to provide a framework for service-to-service communication.

Today’s guest is Zack Butcher.  While working at Google, he was one of the earliest engineers contributing to Istio, an open platform-independent service mesh that provides traffic management, policy enforcement, and telemetry collection.  Today he’s the head of product at Tetrate, working on products like the Tetrate Service Bridge and Tetrate Cloud.  We discuss the need and implementation of a service mesh and how companies are leveraging tools like their service bridge.
