What is Istio?

Share this post:

Istio is open technology that provides a way for developers to seamlessly connect, manage and secure networks of different microservices — regardless of platform, source or vendor.

What exactly is microservices and this Istio thing everyone is talking about?

In this video, JJ Asghar explains the basics of this new, open-platform, independent service mesh and looks at how it runs on Kubernetes. Istio is something that is poised to make your life a whole lot easier if you’re dealing with microservices on a control plane API.
