Tetrate now available in AWS Marketplace

For most organizations, modernizing enterprise applications is a journey. During this journey, it’s not uncommon for applications to migrate from datacenters to clouds, VMs to containers, with concerns and requirements spanning from edge to workload and everywhere in between––often all at the same time. Istio, the most widely deployed and de facto standard service mesh, helps enterprises manage application modernization along every step of that journey. And now, Tetrate Istio Subscription (TIS) is available for Amazon customers on the AWS Marketplace, making it the first hardened Istio subscription with enterprise support available there.

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.

Tetrate launches Industry-first exam for Certified Istio Administrator

Enterprises are increasing their investments in digital transformation and in hiring the right talent to accelerate the journey. According to the 2020 open source jobs report from Linux Foundation, 52% of hiring managers are more likely to hire someone with a certification, up from 47% two years ago. Not so surprisingly, 93% of hiring managers report difficulty finding sufficient talent. Tetrate today announced the public availability of its exam for Certified Istio Administrator by Tetrate (CIAT) that evaluates skill, knowledge, and ability to perform Istio service mesh installation and configuration as well as configure traffic management, resilience and fault injection, and use security features of the Istio service mesh. This follows the February launch of the free training and certification course on Istio Fundamentals. Over 600 IT professionals have taken the training since then.
