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.

Tetrate Service Bridge

Multi-site failover with Tetrate Service Bridge

Microservices bring many benefits to any organization’s software practice. It can be efficiency, speed of changes and improvements, granularity of control over application behavior, solid and stable end-user experience with multiple instances of the service running in parallel, and also global reach with ability to get services closer to the user geographical location and more.

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.

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.

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.

Why do you need Istio when you already have Kubernetes?

If you’ve heard of service mesh and tried Istio, you may have the following questions:

  1. Why is Istio running on Kubernetes?
  2. What is the role of Kubernetes and a service mesh in the cloud-native application architecture, respectively?
  3. What aspects of Kubernetes does Istio extend? What problems does it solve?
  4. What is the relationship between Kubernetes, Envoy, and Istio?

This article will take you through the inner workings of Kubernetes and Istio. In addition, I will introduce the load balancing approach in Kubernetes, and explain why you need Istio when you have Kubernetes.
