The first problem that any cloud-native application has to solve is how to communicate with the world outside the cluster. This is “the ingress problem”, and while service meshes don't have to solve it directly, it is absolutely a major part of successfully getting your application working with one! We were joined by Flynn & Kai for a whirlwind tour of how service meshes interact with ingress controllers using the Linkerd service mesh with Emissary-ingress, NGINX, and Envoy Gateway.
