Ambient removes the need for sidecars in Istio service mesh, but what does this mean for the life of a request? A request is no longer routed sidecar to sidecar, they are now instead replaced by ztunnels and waypoint proxies. How many ztunnels are hit during a typical request? Are waypoints client-side or server-side? How do they interact with an Istio ingress gateway? The goal of this talk is to walk through a request from client to server in a few different scenarios and answer all of these questions and more.
