Istio is a very popular Service Mesh Framework which uses Lyft’s Envoy as the sidecar proxy. Service Mesh gives you the freedom of not having to worry about the service to service communication as part of your application code. Instead of bloating your microservice with similar functionalities, you can let the Service Mesh handle that complexity for you.
Yesterday Istio 1.1 was released which primary focuses on addressing the performance and scalability issues which organizations bumped into running large clusters in Production environment. There are a number of improvements to both the Data Plane & Control Plane to make it more efficient and also significant improvements to the overall product.
The Cloud Native Ecosystem is constantly evolving and continues to grow at a fast pace. The usage of Cloud Native Technologies in Production has tremendously increased during the recent past.
Microservices are complex and building a scalable and resilient Microservice architecture is challenging. By using Kubernetes, Envoy and Istio you can reduce the complexity associated with your services.
Istio 1.0 was released today – indicating that all the core features are now ready for Production use. The growth of Istio has been tremendous over the past few months and it has seen wider adoption from the developer community.
The sidecar design pattern is gaining popularity and wider adoption within the community. Building a Microservice architecture that is highly scalable, resilient, secure and observable is challenging. The evolution of Service Mesh architecture has been a game changer.
In this blog, I will explain the concept of Service Mesh, why it is needed for your cloud native applications, the reason of its popularity & incredible growth/adoption within the community. Microservices have taken the software industry by storm and… Read More ›
In this article, we will create an automated script to enable developers to work in Kubernetes and Istio environment. So basically once you run this script you will have a functional development environment set to get started with your development work.
