What is Apache SkyWalking? Observing the Heterogenous Stack at Scale

The observability problem for modern DevOps is familiar: As enterprises move to microservices, containerization, multi-language RPC frameworks, and service meshes, there’s an increasing need for users to understand a highly complex, distributed architecture and the dependencies between applications.

What’s new in Istio 1.8: DNS proxy helps expand mesh to VMs and multicluster

The latest Istio releases have been widely anticipated by users who want to extend the service mesh to their legacy workloads. Istio 1.7 laid some of the groundwork to make VMs first-class citizens in the mesh by making VMs look more like a pod in Istio. With its latest 1.8 release, Istio has resolved a key problem with DNS in the service mesh that has stood in the way of expanding the mesh to VMs and enabling seamless multicluster access and has continued to build on the groundwork laid in 1.7 to make VMs easier to enroll in the mesh.
