Istio is an open source service mesh platform. Idit Levine is the founder and CEO of Solo.io and works extensively with Istio. In this article, she recounts the latest Istio 1.5 release and what the addition of WebAssembly brings to developers working with service mesh.
Every Monday, we take a step back and look at all the cool stuff that went down during the previous week. Last week, an IDE designed to be an alternative to VS Code was released: Eclipse Theia. There was also a lot going on with Java 15—from a release date to the first confirmed JEP. And, since Istio underwent a major change in v1.5, we spoke to the developer team to get all the details.
With the release of Istio 1.5, the service mesh underwent a remarkable change from a collection of microservices to a single binary, or monolith. We got in touch with some of the Istio team and talked to Senior Technical Staff Member at IBM Lin Sun and IBM Distinguished Engineer Daniel Berg about the new update and what the future holds.
Every Monday, we take a step back and look at all the cool stuff that went down during the previous week. Last week, the creator of Concurnas presented the new JVM language in detail. We also welcomed the latest Istio release and the first RedMonk ranking of 2020—and we showed how embracing compassion, respect, and empathy can make you a better programmer.
The newest release of Istio, version 1.5, has landed. This new release improves CPU performance, includes a new extension model for proxy servers, and graduates some security settings. How do you follow up such a successful year as 2019? The roadmap for 2020 shows that Istio’s plans going forward include making it sleeker, smoother, and faster.
Istio 1.4 includes a new Istio operator, new Istio controller, new `v1beta1` authorization policy, automatic mutual Transport Layer Security (TLS) support, and updates to `istioctl`. Check out this post from the IBM Developer Blog taking a deep dive into the details of the latest Istio updates, with some concrete examples of what’s changed.
Service Meshes are currently a very popular topic in IT: Microservices architectures are growing continuously and with them the difficulty of keeping track. We spoke with Patrick Arnold, IT consultant at Pentasys AG, about service meshes such as Istio, Linkerd and solo.io and best practices when using them.
Every Monday, we take a step back and look at all the cool stuff that went down during the previous week. Last week, we welcomed the latest version of Kubernetes as well as Istio 1.2. Let’s have a look.
Istio 1.1 might have taken some extra time to go live but its successor, 1.2 comes along swiftly! With Istio 1.2, features that have been delivered over the past several 1.1.x releases are now officially part of the build. Let’s have a look.
Microservices architecture can be complex to configure. If you have a polyglot environment, how would you make sure all of the stacks can address the same concerns in a consistent way? This is where a service mesh comes in!
It’s been eight months since Istio 1.0 was released so now it’s time to welcome the next version. The theme for 1.1 is Enterprise Ready, which means the team has worked hard to make sure companies using Istio will have a smooth ride.
Do you need a cloud-based platform for your microservices? In this article, Emily Jiang explores how the popular service mesh Istio can be used to harness the open source power of Eclipse Profile to deploy microservices securely.
The latest edition of ThoughtWorks’ Technology Radar has highlighted what a lot of commentators already know: Istio and Knative are worth exploring but so are WebAssembly and Flutter. What’s even more interesting is that there are no languages, tools or platforms on the ‘adopt’ list so it’s safe to say that no one is missing out on anything.
A match made in heaven? If you’re wondering what the microservices in your Istio service mesh are doing, Kiali’s got you covered. This new project helps you visualize the service mesh topology, and offers visibility into features like circuit breakers, request rates and more. Have we mentioned it runs on OpenShift and Kubernetes? Let’s have a closer look.
