DO328 - Building Resilient Microservices with Istio and Red Hat OpenShift Service Mesh Classroom Training
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) teaches students installation, service monitoring, service management, and service resilience of Red Hat OpenShift® Service Mesh.
Openshift created an enterprise-ready, multi-tenant platform that made deploying and scaling microservice applications efficient and easily repeatable. But as these architectures become larger and more complex, defining how these services interact with each other becomes increasingly difficult. Red Hat OpenShift Service Mesh comprises 3 products—Istio, Jaeger, and Kiali—that facilitate service interaction management, provide service tracing, and create a visual representation of communication pathways.
This course is based on Red Hat OpenShift® Container Platform 4.4 and Red Hat OpenShift Service Mesh 1.1.

Impact on the organization
Employing microservice architectures with OpenShift and OpenShift Service Mesh enable organizations to improve application resilience and scalability, while decreasing developer overhead. Teams can reduce time to market and improve insights into their microservice architecture by being able to visualize and trace data flow throughout their applications. With these insights, organizations can optimally allocate resources and quickly identify defects in specific microservices applications.
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 can use the concepts in this course to simplify service interactions and manage them efficiently. You will learn how to install and configure OpenShift Service Mesh to define, monitor, and manage service interaction within microservice architectures. This course is intended to illustrate the ease of OpenShift Service Mesh’s “sidecar” approach and to highlight the product’s benefits of service resilience and monitoring.
