OpenShift Commons Briefing #78: Application Delivery Services with OpenShift & Ansible Automation with Ashish Shah (Avi Networks)
June 22, 2017 | by
OpenShift Commons Briefing Summary
Avi Networks’ Ashish Shah, Senior Director, Product Management was the guest speaker for this briefing covering key container networking concepts and introducing the capabilities in the Avi Networks’ Service Mesh for OpenShift/Kubernetes applications.
Application networking services needed for OpenShift/Kubernetes applications are very different from traditional three-tier applications. Services such as load balancing within and across clusters, service discovery, application performance monitoring, security, and visibility are needed to deliver robust container applications. Traditional hardware or virtual appliance-based load balancers are not built to handle the dynamic and distributed nature of microservices applications, while lightweight proxies don’t have the analytics, scale, security, nor enterprise class load balancing features that enterprises expect for production deployments.
The briefing covered:
• How to setup ready-to-use local and global load balancing services.
• Perform service discovery to map service domain names to virtual IPs.
• How to visualize microservices with dependency graphs.
• Deliver monitoring, analytics, and security services.
• Ansible automation concepts for network services.
