Multi-cluster Service Mesh Workshop
This workshop is based on Istio and Gloo Mesh (https://github.com/solo-io/gloo-mesh). It’s a hands-on workshop where each participant has a dedicated VM. In the VM, you deploy 3 Kubernetes clusters using Kind. One cluster is a management plane where Gloo Mesh is deployed, while Istio is deployed in the 2 other clusters. Then, you federate the identity of the Istio clusters, configure cross cluster communications, failover, secure ingress communications. In addition, before each lab, we go through some slides. For example, before the identity federation, we explain you what is SPIFFE, how it’s used in Istio.
The labs are publicly available:
- Lab 1 – Deploy KinD clusters
- Lab 2 – Deploy Istio
- Lab 3 – Deploy the Bookinfo demo app
- Lab 4 – Deploy the httpbin demo app
- Lab 5 – Deploy and register Gloo Mesh
- Lab 6 – Create workspaces
- Lab 7 – Expose the productpage through a gateway
- Lab 8 – Traffic policies
- Lab 9 – Create the Root Trust Policy
- Lab 10 – Multi-cluster Traffic
- Lab 11 – Leverage Virtual Destinations
- Lab 12 – Zero trust
- Lab 13 – Deploy Keycloak
- Lab 14 – Securing the access with OAuth
- Lab 15 – Apply rate limiting to the Gateway
Istio is being adopted by most of the companies, but managing many clusters is challenging.
In this workshop, we introduce all the concepts that are important in this context and we give the users the opportunity to learn with practical examples
