By defining our own MCP server, we allow users to move to the Istio service mesh without any code and deployment model changes. This means we can easily use Istio to control, observe, connect, and secure services running outside Kubernetes clusters.
In this post, we will explore a proof of concept illustrating how we can leverage identity federation using a single IBM Cloud App ID instance along with common operational patterns, such as Kubernetes and Istio, to create a centralized identity and access management model that can transparently secure applications/services across cloud environments.
We're going to show you how to build a source into a container image from a Dockerfile inside a Kubernetes cluster and push the image to IBM Cloud Container Registry with Google's Kaniko tool.
We're excited to bring you Part 1 of our Hybrid Cloud Architecture video series: Connectivity. In this lightboarding video, we're going to explain how you can connect your various cloud environments in the overall hybrid cloud.
Istio and Knative are poised to change how application developers use and view Kubernetes, the services will provide a new, simpler (yet more advanced) experience when it comes to managing cloud-native applications.
A “Kubernetes Everywhere” Approach: Build and Deploy Enterprise-Scale Modern Applications for Hybrid Cloud
We are excited to introduce two optional cloud-managed services and capabilities designed to enable clients to quickly build and deploy enterprise-scale container-based applications across hybrid environments: Managed Istio and Managed Knative for IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service.
Managed Istio on IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service provides a seamless installation of Istio, automatic updates, and lifecycle management of Istio control plane components, and integration with platform logging and monitoring tools.
There is a growing interest in running workloads across clusters. Multicluster deployments can result in better scaling, failure isolation, and application agility. Towards that end, Istio v1.1 builds on and enhances the Istio 1.0 multicluster support.
