Data plane, control plane, and a… management plane? What is a management plane and how is it different than a control plane?

Learn how Meshery, an open source, multi-service mesh management plane is advancing the Service Mesh Interface (SMI) specification. See 6 service meshes in-action:
  • Istio
  • Linkerd
  • Consul
  • Octarine
  • Network Service Mesh
  • Citrix CPX
...as Meshery provisions each of these service meshes, their sample applications and benchmarks the performance of service mesh deployments. Meshery facilitates benchmarking various configuration scenarios of each service mesh, comparison of performance of services (applications) on and off the mesh and across different meshes.

Understand the caveats of onboarding your applications onto a service mesh as Meshery vets mesh and services configuration against deployment best practices.

Benefits to the Ecosystem:
Many audience members are challenged in their attempts to understand the difference between service mesh architectures (i.e. data plane, control plane, management plane).
This talk is an opportunity for people to see more service meshes demonstrated back-to-back than has ever been presented before.

Using Meshery, demonstrations will be done in the context of the Service Mesh Interface (SMI) specification, which is a project that most people do not have an understanding of and will benefit from demonstrations of this specification in-action.
