What’s new in Istio 1.7? VM Identity, simplified cert management and more!

Istio, the leading Open Source service mesh offering, today announced the general availability of their 1.7 release. The new features make it easier to bootstrap clusters and to maintain their own versions of software add-ons like Prometheus and Jaeger.

Istio’s 1.7 release was highly anticipated because of its focus on extending the mesh to work in virtual machine-based cloud environments. Tetrate was founded to solve this problem and has been solving this problem for the past year in partnership with customers in real deployments. In the 1.6 release, we expanded the mesh to include the VM environment while the 1.7 release, managed by Tetrate’s Cynthia Coan, addressed the gap of needing a verifiable identity for the VM.

Observability 101: What you see is what you get

One of the most repeated pieces of advice for anyone getting started with microservices is to make sure you can see everything that’s going on inside your services. Leverage the power of observability. However, observability is a loaded term – so it’s valuable to understand what that terms mean, and what’s involved.

Observability at scale: SkyWalking it is!

SkyWalking, a top-level Apache project, is the open source APM and observability analysis platform that is solving the problems of 21st-century systems that are increasingly large, distributed, and heterogenous. It’s built for the struggles system admins face today: To identify and locate needles in a haystack of interdependent services, to get apples-to-apples metrics across polyglot apps, and to get a complete and meaningful view of performance. 

SkyWalking is a holistic platform that can observe microservices on or off a mesh, and can provide consistent monitoring with a lightweight payload.

Let’s take a look at how SkyWalking evolved to address the problem of observability at scale, and grew from a pure tracing system to a feature-rich observability platform that is now used to analyze deployments that collect tens of billions of traces per day.
