Replacing NGINX with Envoy in a Traffic Control System
by Mark McBride
In late 2017 Turbine Labs migrated the proxy at the center of their traffic control product from NGINX from Envoy. In this talk Mark will outline the decision making criteria for embarking on this migration and the steps they took to make this transition transparent. He will also walk through the engineering effort, from packaging, deployment, monitoring, and committing new features back to the Envoy community. At the end he will describe the benefits of the new system, and talk about future improvements.
