https://img-a.udemycdn.com/course/480x270/2622934_c2d3_2.jpg

Learn how the Istio service mesh can turbo charge your Kubernetes career – with hands on, real world practicals

What you’ll learn

  • What are Service Meshes?
  • What is Istio?
  • How can I run Istio locally?
  • What are Envoy Proxies?
  • The Istio Control and Data Planes
  • Visualising a Cluster using Kiali
  • Distributed Tracing using Jaeger
  • Monitoring metrics using Grafana
  • What are Istio VirtualServices and DestinationRules?
  • How to deploy Canaries (and what they are!)
  • How to deploy “Dark Releases”
  • Istio Gateways
  • How to test the resilience of a system using Fault Injection

Requirements

  • Understand standard Kubernetes
  • Be familiar with pods, deployments and services from Kubernetes
  • Be able to run a Kubernetes environment such as Minikube
  • If using Minikube, 4gb is required and therefore an 8gb host machine (laptop/desktop) is required

Description

Updated for Istio 1.5 on April 3 2020!

Istio is one of the most talked-about frameworks in recent years! If you’ve worked with Kubernetes before, then you’ll want to learn Istio! With this hands-on, practical course, you’ll be able to gain experience in running your own Istio Service Meshes.

This course is designed to be clear and understandable – and fun! But we also go into detail – you’ll be learning how to use Istio in real production scenarios – and you’ll be looking at the inner workings of Istio.

You can run this course on your own computer, using Minikube (8Gb of Host Ram required) – you don’t need a cloud provider, although you can also run the course there – anywhere that you can run Kubernetes!

After a brief talk about what Istio is, we go straight into a hands-on demo, where you’ll experience how Istio can solve difficult problems on live projects.

Then you’ll find out the details of:

  • Traffic Management
  • Telemetry
  • Visualisation (with Kiali)
  • Distributed Tracing (with Jaeger)
  • Using Grafana to monitor network traffic
  • How to deploy canary releases
  • How to do “Dark Releases”
  • Istio VirtualServices and DestinationRules
  • Load Balancing and Session Affinity
  • Istio Gateways
  • Resilience testing with Fault Injection
  • Circuit Breaking/Outlier Detection
  • Securing cluster traffic with Mutual TLS (mTLS)

The “learning curve” for Istio is steep – which is why I’ve designed this course to be as clear and understandable as possible, and I hope with the hands-on demos, you’ll also have fun along the way. But most of all, Istio is an extremely powerful tool, and it’s a great addition to your CV!

Who this course is for:
  • Any Kubernetes developer who wants to learn what Istio can do for them
  • Anyone who has tried to understand Istio but finds the standard documentation too confusing
