Continental Innovates with Rancher and Kubernetes
Service Mesh addresses the communication requirements typical in a microservices-based application, including encrypted tunnels, health checks, circuit breakers, load balancing and traffic permission. Leaving the microservices to address these requirements leads to an expensive and time consuming development process. In this blog, we’ll provide an overview of the most common microservice communication requirements that the Service Mesh architecture pattern solves.
Learn about the integration of Citrix ADC as an Istio ingress gateway and sidecar proxy in Istio service mesh deployed on Rancher.
Join us in this Kubernetes Master Class to learn how to secure both the application workloads as well as the system infrastructure in a service mesh deployment. Register for the free online training here.
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.
