Service mesh architecture proposes a unique approach for control plane management (including load balancing). This talk goes over the options available for gRPC load-balancing in the context of a gRPC integration in a service mesh.

 In this talk, we will cover:
  • various load balancing options available for gRPC and the tradeoff associated with each one of them.
  • load balancing at scale with and without gRPC lookaside load balancing.
  • proxy based load balancing and Service Mesh along with considerations when using them as an alternative to lookaside gRPC load balancing.
  • how unified endpoint management can be achieved for Health check and load metric reporting for both gRPC load balancing and Service Mesh.
