Istio Primary Use Case
VP of Engineering at a healthcare company with 201-500 employees
We are using the Istio framework as the service mesh for our microservices. We use it as a load balancer for the network traffic that is coming in.
We have HTTP traffic that is coming into our service, and this traffic has to go to multiple other services. Typically, in microservice, you have a class of servers that need to talk to each other. There is a proxy server that talks to these servers on the mesh layer.
