Microservice and service mesh architectures bring big benefits — along with significant architectural complexity. A single call to one service can fan out to countless other microservices in a homogenous mesh, making debugging a Herculean task. Without cautious architecture, an organization can end up with a "distributed monolith." One strategy to avoid this is the domain-oriented service architecture. A DOA applies the ideas of domain-driven design to a distributed system. Services are grouped into domains and domains communicate over gateways. Kuma (CNCF sandbox project) has recently introduced first-class support for a DOA architecture with its gateway feature. The new MeshGateway API features logical service-level domain isolation and enforcement of cross-domain routing and control policies. This talk will show how to achieve a domain-oriented architecture in a microservice platform with the power of Kuma's MeshGateway.
Observability is critical for finding success in your digital transformation journey. Based on an API-first, cloud native microservice architecture, services and APIs are dynamically distributed and the user transaction journey gets complicated and agile. But the right set of observability tools can speed up MTTR and help improve the chances to achieve your SLO. In this session, we review the selection of observability plugins available from Kong on logs, metrics, and tracing — and we’ll demo how to use them to gain visibility from a single panel of glass. We’ll discuss Kong Gateway’s new open tracing capability and preview some OpenTelemetry-based plugins in the works. And we’ll also share Kong’s take on observability maturity levels and our recommendations for successfully implementing an observability strategy.

The modern data stack has become increasingly popular in the analytics community. Patterns like domain-driven design, known from classical software development, are finding their way into analytics contexts. This is the basis of a new paradigm, like Data Mesh. In a Data Mesh, every domain - like a different department for example - wants to solve similar problems with their own business data. Therefore, it’s vital to implement a flexible, lightweight, and manageable, but also secured and monitorable central self-service data platform. With the containerization of services, and using Kubernetes as a runtime, you can build flexible data architectures. Data visualization, data ingestion, orchestration, and ETL tools, as well as Cloud Data Warehouses, should all live together in a kind of a mesh. In this session, learn how Kong's CNCF Sandbox, project Kuma, provides the next level of security when handling data, other business domains, and exchanging data with external systems. Uncover the advantages of end-to-end tracing, data collection, and external access from outside of the mesh using Data APIs.
