Introducing Podinfo

Podinfo is a tiny web application made with Go that showcases best practices of running microservices in Kubernetes. It provides a simple web interface that allows you verify the operation of ingresses and/or service meshes. Podinfo was written by Stefan Prodan of Weaveworks, and is freely available on github. There are many options, and URLs are available to provide a wealth of information. More information on Podinfo is available here.

For our workshop, we will be using podinfo to show how to use App Mesh and the observability it gives us.

We will be deploying podinfo in the following logical architecture:
