Announcing Tetrate Istio Distro Deployment through EKS add-ons: Simplifying Istio on EKS
Today, we are excited to announce that Tetrate Istio Distro (TID) is deployable as an add-on for Amazon EKS. Istio is the de facto standard for running service mesh on top of Kubernetes, and AWS EKS is one of the most popular ways to run Kubernetes. Tetrate’s TID is the first Istio distro deployable using EKS add-on commands, and this new capability makes it super simple to run Tetrate’s hardened, FIPS-compliant, and fully upstream Istio distribution everywhere EKS is available. By making TID available as an add-on, we are making it easier for organizations to productionize Istio, reduce operational complexity, and ultimately achieve application security and modernization goals faster. In this blog, I will show you how to get started with this new EKS add-on.
