Istio is an open source, multi-cloud service mesh, capable of performing intelligent traffic management. Istio's traffic routing rules let you easily control the flow of traffic and API calls to and from deployed cluster resources.
In this Lab scenario, you'll learn how to use Istio to perform traffic routing to a pair of sample web applications, V1 and V2, deployed into a Kubernetes cluster. You'll first setup a traffic routing policy to balance traffic evenly (50/50) across both versions. You'll test and confirm that the traffic is indeed evenly split before later updating the traffic routing policy to use a 80/20 split.
Upon completion of this Lab, you will be able to:
This Lab will start with the following AWS resources provisioned automatically for you:
