About this Episode

There are still so many questions about service mesh. So, so many questions, as a curious, spirited and hungry KubeCon + CloudNative Con North America 2019 attendees raised in The New Stack’s early morning pancake breakfast panel discussion, sponsored by VMware. Which comes first, Kubernetes or a service mesh? How many sidecars per app is the right number of sidecars? Should a small company start with a service mesh, or just bring it in later when business booms and ops grow?

Luckily, we had assembled a savvy panel of service mesh experts from across the industry to address these queries, namely:

Jean Atelsek / Analyst / 451 Research
Vivian (Wei) Fu / Engineering Manager / Uber
Fuyuan Bie / Software Engineer / Pinterest
Lita Cho / Senior Software Engineer / Lyft
Ines Envid / Product Manager / Google Cloud Platform
Pere Monclus / Vice President and Chief Technology Officer, Network and Security / VMware
The New Stack founder and Publisher Alex Williams moderated the discussion, recorded for this latest episode of The New Stack Makers podcast.
