In my previous post, I showed how o install and run istio locally with minikube. However, if you don’t have 8GB of ram FREE it might not be a good FIT for you. Today I want to show a lightweight approach for a local environment where we can run Istio with Docker, Docker-Compose, and Consul. I will be doing more posts about istio, this week, talking about how to run Istio on AWS for instance. But going back to this post.
In order to have this solution working in your machine you have some pre-requirements such as: have docker installed, docker-compose installed and kubectl installed. Running with consult and docker-compose is way easier than running with minikube/kubernetes however you are not as close as the production topology. For istio, we will be using istio version 1.0.5 Let’s get started!
