Inter Service Communication

Communication between services
  • All inter-communication is handled by the Linkerd service mesh. Linkerd provides mTLS, load balancing, retries and many other reliability/security features.

  • Opta creates a private subnet where all the services run. So every service is inaccessible from the outside, by default. You can enable external requests by using the public_uri field.

  • Every service also gets an internal-only domain name that can be used by other services to connect to it. The name is <module-name>.<service-name>. Requests sent to this domain will automatically get load balanced b/w all healthy containers.
