The Top 10 Reasons We Love Istio

Although Istio is one of the most feature-rich and popular open-source service-mesh platforms in the world, it also comes with a bit of an intimidation factor. Make no mistake, implementing a service mesh (any service mesh) can add complexity to your cloud-native environment.

Why to Use a Service Mesh…and How to Choose the Right One
Why to Use a Service Mesh…and How to Choose the Right One

Developers are expected to create over 750 million applications within the next three years. The catalyst that enables such an exponential scale of application development is the pervasive use of microservice-based application architectures.

What is a Service Mesh?
What is a Service Mesh?

Running microservices in their own containers made it even easier and more practical to add, upgrade, and scale specific features and functionality without having to release new versions of the entire cloud application with every change. Soon, it became clear that another, higher-level abstraction of services was necessary to manage inter-service traffic and to provide better security and observability. Service mesh to the rescue!

Today, application developers and DevOps teams face an analogous challenge. As businesses step up their adoption of cloud-native architectures to meet the demand for digital transformation, the tools developers use to manage this complex work are themselves overwhelmingly complex. Like so much else Cisco is doing these days — the underlying ethos of Calisti has to do with streamlining and simplicity.

Event-driven multicluster autoscaling with Calisti
Event-driven multicluster autoscaling with Calisti

Multi-cluster service meshes have emerged as an architecture pattern to enable high availability, fault isolation, and failover for distributed applications. In this blog, we will explore a dynamic, or event-driven, method for replicating workloads across a multi-cluster service mesh.

Extending your service mesh into edge sites
Extending your service mesh into edge sites

Service meshes are both operationally and resource heavy so for service meshes to be adopted on edge sites it is necessary to make them lighter weight. How can a service mesh be extended to edge sites while still being lean on resource consumption and operational requirements?
