Life Without Sidecars - Is eBPF's Promise Too Good to Be True? - Zahari Dichev, Buoyant

The recent popularity of eBPF has triggered a number of discussions of whether this technology will revolutionize the service mesh space. The promise of all the benefits that a service mesh can bring to your cloud-native infrastructure at a fraction of the performance and operational cost seems tantalizing. eBPF is said to be the tool that can help us build a native and highly efficient service mesh implementation and free us from the sidecar model. Could this all be true? In this talk, Zahari will go down the rabbit hole and try to explore what is and is not possible with an eBPF-powered service mesh. Are proxies really going away and if yes what does that really mean for the security, resilience, and operational complexity of your infrastructure?
