Your Application Deserves Better than Kubernetes Ingress: Istio vs. Kubernetes

Join this webinar to learn the difference between Kubernetes Ingress and Istio Ingress Gateway and see demos of both.

In this webinar, we will cover the difference between Kubernetes Ingress and Istio Ingress Gateway. A production end-user facing application should have an “Ingress” to expose itself to the outside world. While Kubernetes provides the “Ingress” resource for this purpose, its feature set is limited depending on the kind of Ingress Controller (usually nginx) being used.

The other option is to leverage Istio and take advantage of its more feature-rich Ingress Gateway resource, even if our application Pods themselves are not using sidecar proxies (pure Kubernetes). We can do so by incrementally adopting Istio’s feature: Ingress Gateway - which uses Envoy proxy as the gateway (as opposed to nginx). Let’s explore the two approaches in this demo and see how Istio can help manage your ingress traffic.
