The world of microservices keeps evolving and growing and with that, you’ll need a special application network layer. Microservices can be complicated and difficult to manage. These complexities have given rise to a new solution called service mesh. Istio is the most dominant service mesh in production today per a CNCF survey in late 2020. This workshop explains how to get started with Istio by incrementally adopting Istio and observing the benefits that Istio service mesh brings to you. We will explore various functions and benefits that Istio provides to your organization. We cover the following topics in this workshop:
- Install Istio
- Secure services with Istio Ingress Gateway
- Add Services to the Mesh
- Secure inter-services communication with Istio
- Control Traffic
This workshop is intended for developers and operators. Anyone responsible for the delivery of microservices will find the workshop valuable. We assume you are just learning about Istio and service mesh.
