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, the service mesh has to be established across clouds. In this presentation John and Robert will show how an application can be stretched between two disparate cloud environments--public cloud and on-prem private 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. The summary will discuss how the Istio community has addressed this problem.
