Microservices  Tutorial for Beginners: Discovering Service Mesh

We will understand Service Mesh in more detail along with a sample implementation based on Istio and Spring Boot. Service interactions in the microservices world deal with many non-functional concerns — service discovery, load balancing, fault tolerance, etc. Service Mesh provides the platform to manage these concerns in a more efficient and cleaner way.

Conciliate the Tangled Mesh Using ISTIO

ISTIO, an open-source service mesh platform, makes service to service communication secure, efficient, and reliable. Check out the architecture and components.

OpenShift Service Mesh essentials — Part IV — Features: Routing

See how using advanced routing you can modify the behaviour of your application without including API gateways or writing code in your app. In this series of articles, we will dig into the OpenShift Service Mesh world. ... OpenShift Service Mesh essentials — Part IV — Features: Routing ...

Service Mesh Era: Building Modern Apps with YugabyteDB and Istio

Microservices architectures are becoming the de facto way developers are thinking about how their applications are constructed.

Flagger — Monitor Your Canary Deployments with Grafana

Keeping an eye on apps in Kubernetes and Istio. This is the third story in our series dedicated to Flagger, a progressive delivery tool that automates the release process for applications running on Kubernetes. It reduces the risk of introducing a new software version in production by gradually shifting traffic to the new version while measuring metrics and running conformance tests. I’ll show you how to install Grafana and monitor canary deployments without having to use Kubernetes’ dashboard or kubectl command line tool.

Flagger - Get Started with Istio and Kubernetes

This article is the first of the series and also the only one where we won’t use Flagger yet… this article will walk through how you to run a Kubernetes cluster on your local environment and deploy an application which will be accessible via an Istio gateway.

Flagger - Canary Deployments on Kubernetes

This article is the second one of the series dedicated to Flagger. In a nutshell, Flagger is a progressive delivery tool that automates the release process for applications running on Kubernetes.

OpenShift Service Mesh Essentials  — The Why and What of it

In this series of articles, we will dig into the OpenShift Service Mesh world. In this post we will go through some introductory questions like “Why someone would need a Service Mesh?“, “Do I really need it?”, “How is the OpenShift Service Mesh architecture?”.

6 Tips Before You Start Using Istio

Consider these before, during, and after installing Istio. Istio is gaining popularity among K8s practitioners and DevOps because it simplifies the connectivity between services. With a continuously growing community, it has become a tool you must consider for any production environment.

The Service Mesh in the Microservices World - DZone Microservices

In this article, take a look at the service mesh in the microservices world. The software industry has come a long journey and throughout this journey, Software Architecture has evolved a lot. Starting with 1-tier (Single-node), 2-tier (Client/ Server), 3-tier, and Distributed are some of the Software Architectural patterns we saw in this journey.

Kubecon 2020: Istio Simplified

This article serves as a summary for the session Istio Simplified at ServiceMeshCon, KubeCon Europe 2020. Session was presented by Louis Ryan from Google and Steve Dake from IBM.

Managing TLS keys and certs in Istio using Amazon’s ACM

We use AWS’s EKS to manage our Kubernetes clusters and use Istio as a service mesh. Managing a lot of microservices inside a Kubernetes cluster can be made easier using Istio. Istio’s ingress gateway also provides an easy way to manage traffic coming inside the cluster using gateways and virtual services.

REST and gRPC Load Generation in Flagger for Blue/Green deployments

This article discusses about one of the ways to generate REST and gRPC traffic for blue/green deployment using Flagger.

Helping Reach a Zero Trust Network Using an Istio Service Mesh

In this article, I show steps to configure an Istio service mesh as a Zero Trust network. Specifically, I present a simple example microservice architecture and then lock it down with Istio by removing implicit service-to-service trust.

Cross Cluster Service Mesh Using Istio

Implement service discovery across multiple Kubernetes clusters. In this article, I will talk about how you can setup a Service mesh using Istio which spans across multiple clusters.

Live Coding 12-Factor App

Emily Jiang performs live coding of building 12-factor microservices using MicroProfile programming mode and gets them running Open Liberty and Quarkus. Jiang deploys them to Kubernetes and Istio to see how they function.
