The Service Mesh Era: Architecting, Securing and Managing Microservices with Istio

A Google Cloud Whitepaper

Published March 2020


Chances are, like many forward-thinking Google Cloud customers, you believe that building applications inside containers in a microservices architecture is the future of software development. Google do too: single-purpose applications running inside containers combine to form the bulk of their services, and it’s this model that enables Google developers to create massively distributed systems that power some of the world’s most trafficked and reliable applications.

This eBook groups a collection of blog posts written in early 2019 by Google network and security experts. Here, you’ll find in-depth explanations of what Istio is, tactical advice on how to deploy it and use it in your environment, and a great customer example. This is foundational information for anyone who wants to gain a deep understanding of service mesh and how it is architected. It’s also great background reading for anyone interested in learning more about Anthos, Google Cloud’s hybrid and multi-cloud platform, and the new Anthos Service Mesh, a fully managed Istio-based offering for Anthos customers.
