Importance of Wasm in Istio

WasmPlugin API has recently been added to the Istio project as a new and improved mechanism for extensibility. Here at Tetrate, we’ve recently conducted a successful workshop called Istio Wasm workshop. Click here to watch the recording of the workshop and join the conversation on Slack.

We talked about WebAssembly and its importance in Istio and Envoy projects, and went through multiple practical labs using Proxy-Wasm Go SDK and func-e.

Launching Envoy Fundamentals, a training course to enable faster adoption of Envoy Proxy

Also published on: CNCF

Envoy Proxy, an open-source edge and service proxy, is a vital part of today’s modern, cloud-native application and is used in production by large companies like Booking.com, Pinterest, and Airbnb(Source). Tetrate, a top contributor to Envoy, has developed Envoy Fundamentals, free training with a completion certificate, to help enterprises adopt the technology faster. It will enable DevOps users, SREs, developers, and other community members to learn Envoy easily with concept text, practical labs, and quizzes. Tetrate is also the creator of the popular Istio Fundamentals training course and the open-source project Func-e, which makes it easier to adopt Envoy.

By default, the Istio control plane watches and processes updates for all Kubernetes resources in a cluster. Istio configures Envoy proxies in the mesh to reach every workload in the mesh and accept traffic on all ports associated with the workloads.
