Learn to use Istio to secure your cloud communications

KUB 035 Managing Microservices with Istio

Introduction to Service Mesh on Kubernetes | taught by Robert Starmer

Course description


You've heard about Istio. Now learn how to use it!

Istio is a marvelous open source tool that connects, manages, and secures microservices. It can be used to manage traffic flows among microservices, enforce access policies, and aggregate telemetry data, all without requiring changes to the microservice code.

In this course, you'll learn how to successfully deploy Istio, add it to your application, and use the service mesh it creates to manipulate communications between your microservices. 

You'll be doing this with hands-on labs, so you'll graduate from the course not just understanding how it all works, but also being able to immediately implement it for yourself. 

  • Experience with Linux command line will be helpful, but is not a requirement


  • Application Developers
  • Infrastructure Operators
  • Project Managers
  • Pre-Sales / Sale Engineers
  • Development Managers
