Getting Started with Istio Service Mesh Routing

This tutorial demonstrates how to install and use the Istio service mesh in a Kubernetes cluster, and discusses how to best leverage Istio’s routing capabilities.

Explore the difference between Layer 4 and Layer 7 network proxies, and understand how best to leverage L7 proxy benefits.

Due to Istio’s extensibility, and capabilities of service meshes in general, users can implement routing scenarios that would otherwise require a lot more time and resources.
