Getting Started with Lyft Envoy for Microservices Resilience

Using microservices to solve real-world problems always involves more than simply writing the code. You need to test your services. You need to figure out how to do continuous deployment. You need to work out clean, elegant, resilient ways for them to talk to each other.

A really interesting tool that can help with the “talk to each other” bit is Lyft’s Envoy.

Lyft Envoy is a modern, high performance, small footprint edge and service proxy. Envoy adds resilience and observability to your services, and it does so in a way that’s transparent to your service implementation.
