EKS is Anywhere and so is Tetrate

Tetrate works with Amazon EKS and EKS Anywhere to bring seamless connectivity and management to Kubernetes applications both on-premises and in the cloud. One of Tetrate’s founding goals is to enable our customers to manage their applications everywhere––from edge to workload, between services and VMs, in datacenters and the cloud––and to do it securely, reliably, and scalably while providing a consistent experience to IT ops and developers across these environments.

That goal aligns perfectly with EKS Anywhere, Amazon’s new Kubernetes offering that reaches beyond AWS. Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) is a managed compute platform for containers that allows customers to avoid the undifferentiated heavy lifting involved in using roll-your-own Kubernetes to run modern applications on AWS. EKS Anywhere is a new deployment option for Amazon EKS that enables customers to easily create and operate Kubernetes clusters on-premises, including virtual machines (VMs) and bare metal servers. With EKS Anywhere, Amazon offers its customers a consistent Kubernetes experience both on-premises and in the cloud.

API Gateway, Istio, Service Mesh

Using Istio service mesh as API Gateway

API gateways have been around for a long time as the entry point for clients to access the back-end, mainly to manage “north-south” traffic, In recent years, service mesh architectures have become popular, mainly for managing internal systems,(i.e. “east-west” traffic), while a service mesh like Istio also has built-in gateways that bring traffic inside and outside the system under unified control. This often creates confusion for first-time users of Istio. What is the relationship between the service mesh and the API gateway? How does Istio’s gateway work? What are the ways to expose the services in the Istio mesh? This article gives you the answer.

Envoy proxy & GetEnvoy, Tetrate

Get started with Envoy in 5 minutes

Envoy is the engine that keeps Istio running. If you’re familiar with Istio, you know that the collection of all Envoys in the Istio service mesh is also referred to as the data plane

In this blog post, we’ll look at the fundamentals of Envoy: the building blocks of the proxy and, at a high level, how the proxy works. Understanding this will help you better understand how Istio works.

Multicluster Management with Kubernetes and Istio

Do you have multiple Kubernetes clusters and a service mesh? Do your virtual machines and services in a Kubernetes cluster need to interact? This article will take you through the process and considerations of building a hybrid cloud using Kubernetes and an Istio Service Mesh. Together, Kubernetes and Istio can be used to bring hybrid workloads into a mesh and achieve interoperability for multicluster. But another layer of infrastructure — a management plane — is helpful for managing multicluster or multimesh deployments.

What is Istio operator?

For a long time, the primary tools for installing, upgrading, and managing Istio installations were Helm and Kubernetes CLI. Later, Istio 1.4 introduced a new method of installing Istio using the Istio CLI.
