Rancher 2.3 Preview 2 dropped today, with preview support for Istio.
In this master class, we will help you understand the journey of bringing Istio into a production environment and how it differs from your testing environments.
Service mesh is a new technology stack aimed at solving the connectivity problem between cloud native applications. Read an overview at the Rancher blog.
Update: This tutorial on Istio was updated for Rancher 2.0 here. One of the recent open source initiatives that has caught our interest at Rancher Labs is Istio, the micro-services development framework. It’s a great technology, combining some of the latest ideas in distributed services architecture in an easy-to-use abstraction. Istio does several things for you. Sometimes referred to as a \“service mesh\“, it has facilities for API authentication/authorization, service routing, service discovery, request monitoring, request rate-limiting, and more.
