Besides all network overhead, Istio offers very interesting trade-off for sacrificing latency and network overhead for developer productivity and stack independence. In previous posts, I blogged a lot about kubernetes, Istio, Aws, Kops, Eksctl and EKS. Today I will show how to run Istio in AWS using EKS. Keep in mind EKS don’t support Alpha* Specs right now(v1,v2 or v3) so some demos from the istio best selection of slideware won’t work. But is possible to have istio installed and booking app running.
