Istio is an open platform to connect, manage, and secure microservices.

As monolithic applications transition towards a distributed microservice architecture they become more difficult to manage and understand. These architectures need basic necessities such as discovery, load balancing, failure recovery, metrics and monitoring, and more complex operational requirements such as A/B testing, canary releases, rate limiting, access control, and end-to-end authentication. The term 'service mesh' is used to describe the network of microservices that make up applications and the interactions between them.

As the service mesh grows in size and complexity, it becomes harder to understand and manage. Learn how Lyft, IBM and Google have teamed up to solve this problem.
