For this episode of The New Stack Makers, TC Currie is joined by Dr. Eric Brewer, Google Fellow and VP of Infrastructure at Google where he’s the architect of Cloud Native systems at massive scale.  He’s also been a Computer Science Professor at UC Berkeley since 1994.   TC caught up with Dr. Brewer at the recent Service Mesh Days in San Francisco.

“Istio at its core decouples developers from operations,” Brewer said. That decoupling lets both sides go faster and with more confidence.
