ISTIO has become a popular choice for service mesh among enterprises these days, allowing IT teams to add capabilities of observability, traffic management, and security to the apps. Here’s more on ISTIO and its architecture. Read further to know more!
What is ISTIO?
ISTIO Service Mesh is a configurable, open-source service-mesh layer that provides a way to control how microservices share data with one another. It offers a transparent and language-independent way to flexibly and easily automate the network functions within an application.
ISTIO allows IT teams to add capabilities of observability, traffic management, and security to the applications, without the need to add these to the original code. This frees the developers from the pains of writing codes for networking and security from scratch.
Moreover, Istio enables organizations to secure, connect, and monitor microservices, so they can modernize their enterprise applications at a faster pace and securely. This is why ISTIO installation on Kubernetes is being widely adopted by enterprises, both big and small, as the perfect solution to manage different microservices that together build a cloud-native application. ISTIO supports and handles how different parts of a microservices application communicate and share data with one another.Continue reading “An Introduction to ISTIO Service Mesh & its Architecture!“
