Circuit Breaker

Resilient Microservices with Istio Circuit Breaker

Circuit Breaker is a design pattern to create resilient microservices by limiting the impact of service failures and latencies. One of the primary goals of the Circuit Breaker pattern is to handle failures gracefully so that no cascading failures occur. In a Microservice landscape, failing fast is critical. Circuit Breaker does a great job in protecting the service from a heavy load.
