As multi-cloud and hybrid cloud architectures become more popular, solutions such as service mesh promise to integrate widely distributed services. Today's cloud technology professional benefits from a well-rounded understanding of session management in multi-cloud and hybrid cloud environments. In this course, you'll learn how sessions are maintained in load balancing scenarios using sticky sessions, and what the benefits and challenges are of sticky sessions. You'll then explore best practices for load balancing in multi-cloud and hybrid cloud scenarios. Next, you'll examine common techniques for managing session information, including the JSON Web Token-based session management technique used by most cloud solutions. You'll learn the fundamentals of multi-cloud and hybrid-solutions, as well as how identity is managed in both multi-cloud and hybrid environments. Finally, you'll explore some modern strategies for identity management in multi-cloud and hybrid cloud environments, including service mesh and identity fabric.
