In the adoption of cloud native technologies developers have found one of the greatest challenges is the integration and communication of Microservices. The challenges include service discovery, traffic management, fault tolerant messaging, end-to-end monitoring, dynamic routing for canary deployments and most importantly securing the communication channels.

Istio solves these problems by providing a layer of infrastructure between the services and the network that allows the service communication to be controlled outside the application code. This fundamentally changes how services are connected, managed and secured.

During this workshop you will gain hands-on experience to understand how Istio is changing the landscape of cloud native applications. Through a series of hands-on exercises we will some of the key features of Istio such as:

  • Traffic Management and Resilient Communication between Services
  • Policy Enforcement and Rate Limiting
  • Telemetry, Monitoring and Reporting
  • Securing Communication between Microservices
  • Canary Deployment
