    If you are working with Kubernetes or (micro)service based architectures then you have probably heard the term service mesh. This is because a service based architecture has its own set of challenges which a service mesh can help you solve. In this course we will introduce you to the features, with practical hands-on exercises, of the most popular service mesh today Istio. You will also get familiar with Kiali to observe mesh traffic and Jaeger for distributed tracing in a mesh.

    Prerequisites

    • Basic Kubernetes understanding, e.g. similar to the Kubernetes Fundamentals training
      • Deployments
      • Pods
      • Services

    After completing this course, you will be able to:

    • Understand what a service mesh is and why you would want to utilize one
    • Identify Istio’s main components in the control and data planes
    • Route traffic with virtual services and destination rules
    • Leverage Istio to do Blue/Green, Canary and Shadow deployments
    • Understand Istio Ingress/Egress gateway controllers
    • Route inbound/outbound traffic through Ingress/Egress gateways
    • Route traffic to external services
    • Secure communication between your services with mTLS
