This workshop consists of a series of labs that together comprise a hands-on tour of Istio “from 0 to 60,” so to speak.

Eitan and Peter will introduce you to each topic in turn, and walk you through each lab.

After Installing Istio on top a Kubernetes cluster and deploying a microservices application to the mesh, you will work through a lab corresponding to each of the key features of Istio:

  • Configuring Ingress
  • Observability
  • Security
  • Traffic management

If you want to get a better understanding of Istio, this workshop might be right for you!


  • Basic understanding of Kubernetes, Docker, and Linux command line.

After completing this workshop, you’ll be able to:

  • Understand the architecture and components of Istio
  • Deploy Istio on a Kubernetes cluster
  • Use traffic routing for blue-green and canary deployments
  • Use Grafana, Zipkin, and Kiali for service observability
  • Understand the basics of security in Istio and control access to your workloads
