This course will let you explore and tackle the challenges developers and operators face with a distributed or microservices architecture with Istio. Istio is an open-source service mesh that lets you connect, monitor, and secure microservices deployed on-premise, in the cloud, or with orchestration platforms like Kubernetes and Mesos. Whether you’re building from scratch or migrating existing applications to cloud native, Istio can help.

Istio lets you program application-aware traffic management, incredible observability, and robust security capabilities into your network. Istio is the path to load balancing, service-to-service authentication, and monitoring – with few or no service code changes. Its powerful control plane brings a variety of vital features which is designed for extensibility and can handle a diverse range of deployment needs. Istio’s control plane runs on Kubernetes, and you can add applications deployed in that cluster to your mesh, extend the mesh to other clusters, or even connect VMs or other endpoints running outside of Kubernetes.

Let us dive into this fully hands-on course with labs for understanding: 

  • Monoliths vs Microservices
  • Challenges with Microservice Architectures
  • How Service Mesh’s solve these challenges
  • Introduction to Istio
  • Deploying sample application
  • Generating Traffic to the application
  • Visualizing in Kiali Dashboard
  • Understanding Istio Architecture
  • Gateway, Timeouts, Fault Injection
  • Monitoring with Prometheus and Grafana
  • Distributed Tracing with Jaeger

What are the pre-requisites to attend this course?

  • Basic Kubernetes knowledge.
  • Be familiar with pods, deployments and services from Kubernetes.

I'm not a security specialist, but I have realized that the course explains very well every topic and you can use the labs in every lesson to practice. It's a hard certification but using this course I could learn every element step by step and test myself if I was ready using the exam simulators, and I was great because the simulators are very close to a real exam! using this course I got the certification in my first attempt!

Thank you so much Mumshad Mannambeth for the awesome course, I couldn't find better than yours. These courses are well designed with awesome practice labs and have more than the required content to learn and pass the Kubernetes exams. Not sure how you are managing them with these much of low cost.
