In this talk, we describe how Monzo processes financial transactions involving real money and real people in way that’s safe, secure, and resilient. We show how combining Kubernetes with Linkerd creates a highly adaptive system, where Kubernetes provides a baseline level of protection against hardware and software failures and Linkerd layers on request-level resilience, including including latency-aware load-balancing, intelligent retries, and service-level measures of success rates and latency. We show how the resulting system is resilient to a wide variety of failures and protects the financial transactions that flow through it from failure, yet still allows for a rapid pace of feature development and iteration.
