Control, manage, trace, monitor, and test your microservices with Red Hat OpenShift Service Mesh
Building Resilient Microservices with Istio and Red Hat OpenShift Service Mesh (DO328) is an introduction to Red Hat OpenShift Service Mesh that teaches students installation, service monitoring, service resilience, and service security with Red Hat OpenShift Service Mesh.
Red Hat OpenShift created an enterprise-ready, multitenant platform that made deploying and scaling microservice applications efficient and repeatable. But as these architectures become larger and more complex, defining how these services interact with each other is increasingly difficult. Red Hat OpenShift Service Mesh comprises three products: Istio, Jaeger, and Kiali, facilitating a zero-trust network for managing secure service interactions, providing service tracing, and creating a visual representation of communication pathways.
This course is based on Red Hat OpenShift® Container Platform 4.6 and Red Hat OpenShift Service Mesh 2.0.

Impact on the organization
Microservice architectures with Red Hat OpenShift Service Mesh enable organizations to improve application security, resilience, and scalability, while decreasing developer overhead. Red Hat OpenShift Service Mesh adds an additional level of security for data in transit with mutual TLS encryption and a zero-trust network. This leads organizations to improved time to market, as well as improved insight into their microservice architecture, by being able to visualize and trace data flow throughout their applications. These insights can dictate better resource allocation for applications as well as more quickly identifying defects in specific microservices.
Red Hat has created this course in a way intended to benefit our customers, but each company and infrastructure is unique, and actual results or benefits may vary.
Impact on the individual
You will be able to use the concepts in this course to simplify and more efficiently manage their service interactions. You will learn how to install and configure Red Hat OpenShift Service Mesh to define, monitor, manage, and secure service interaction within their microservice architecture. This course is intended to illustrate the ease of Red Hat OpenShift Service Mesh’s “sidecar” approach and to highlight the benefits of service resilience and monitoring that the product provides.
