  • Caddy for Certs and Istio for Reverse Proxy
    2 projects | /r/kubernetes | 1 Dec 2023
    5Y old post that sounds like they've done similar here: Caddy Issue Istio Issue but doesn't cover much of the implementation
  • Developer’s Guide to Building Kubernetes Cloud Apps ☁️🚀
    2 projects | | 10 Oct 2023
    In a production environment there will be a load balancer setup with an Ingress Controller, Service Mesh or some type of Custom Router. This allows all traffic to be sent to the single load balancer IP address and then route the traffic to a service based on the Domain name or subpath. We are using a NGINX ingress controller but service meshes like Istio have been becoming the most popular solution to use as they offer more segmentation, security and granular control.
  • Progressive Delivery on AKS: A Step-by-Step Guide using Flagger with Istio and FluxCD
    5 projects | | 26 Sep 2023
    Flagger is a progressive delivery tool that enables a Kubernetes operator to automate the promotion or rollback of deployments based on metrics analysis. It supports a variety of metrics including Prometheus, Datadog, and New Relic to name a few. It also works well with Istio service mesh, and can implement progressive traffic splitting between primary and canary releases.
  • Implementing TLS in Kubernetes
    13 projects | | 1 Aug 2023
    End-to-end data encryption with a service mesh: Using an end-to-end data encryption mechanism with a service mesh like Istio, TLS can secure communication between different microservices within a Kubernetes cluster. This is a popular approach for modern, distributed microservice architectures.
  • Ultimate EKS Baseline Cluster: Part 1 - Provision EKS
    17 projects | | 21 Jul 2023
    From here, we can explore other developments and tutorials on Kubernetes, such as o11y or observability (PLG, ELK, ELF, TICK, Jaeger, Pyroscope), service mesh (Linkerd, Istio, NSM, Consul Connect, Cillium), and progressive delivery (ArgoCD, FluxCD, Spinnaker).

  • 5 Best Backend-for-Frontend Tools You Should Be Using
    6 projects | | 17 May 2023
    Istio is an open-source service mesh that makes managing, securing, and shaping all traffic and communication between your microservices – and adding observability, too – possible, without ever writing code for any of this – no matter how your distributed architecture is deployed.
  • How to use WebRTC with RTCPeerConnection on Kubernetes?
    2 projects | /r/codehunter | 12 Apr 2023
    The closest I've come to finding a solution is Orchestrating GPU-accelerated streaming apps using WebRTC, their code is available on GitHub. I don't fully understand their approach, I believe it depends on Istio.
  • Top CNCF Projects to look out for in 2023
    5 projects | | 23 Jan 2023
    Istio is an Orchestration & Management / Service Mesh project. With a service mesh, traffic between services is handled at a platform level. This way, reliability, observability, and security features can be tackled here and provided uniformly across all services, instead of being delegated to developers to include in their code. Istio has become the second Incubating CNCF project with the most stars and with most contributors this year.
