Inter Service Communication
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
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.
For example, the following service, will be available at
app.hello-world from any other service in the same environment.
name: hello # service name environments: - name: staging path: "opta.yaml" modules: - type: k8s-service name: app # module name port: http: 80 image: ghcr.io/run-x/opta-examples/hello-app:main
