This article discusses Istio support offered out of the box through the Rancher UI. We'll see an example deployment and visualize it via the Kiali dashboard.
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.

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.
