Jul 5 2018

To close >DockerCon Cool Hacks keynote, Idit Levine from Solo.io presented Gloo, a high-performance, plugin-extendable, platform-agnostic function Gateway built on top of Envoy.

Idit showed a demo that involved modernizing a traditional application; the classic Spring Pet Clinic sample app, by containerizing it and deploying it to Docker Enterprise Edition. She added functionality to the app by adding a microservice written in Go through a Gloo route. Then added more functionality by adding a Gloo route to an AWS Lambda function, creating a true hybrid cloud application combining legacy, microservices and serverless components.

She then provided a demo of Squash, that works with Gloo to live debug two microservices forming an application running in Kubernetes on Docker Enterprise Edition, one in Java from IntelliJ, one in Go from Visual Studio Code.

She finished her presentation by announcing and open sourcing Qloo, a GraphQL Server built on top of Gloo and the Envoy Proxy. This allows you to add GraphQL support without any coding to your existing application, and combining functions together in a workflow described as a graph.
