For DevOps teams to monitor, deploy and maintain microservice-based applications, StackPointCloud is offering managed Istio support within its platform.
Once the platform is running, in the space of minutes, users can monitor application performance issues, microservice policies from its control panel and dependencies between microservices, allowing DevOps teams to manage and deploy kubernetes-based applications, serverless infrastructure and workloads across cloud infrastructure platforms.
With its support for Istio, Stackpoint users can now:
- More easily observe dependencies between microservices and traffic flow
- Identify issues within their apps, saving the business time and keeping users happy
- Introduce policy enforcement to ensure services are doing what they’re supposed to
- Maintain encryption using mTLS
- Combine Istio with other cloud-native tools such as Prometheus, Calico and EFK;
- Secure any of their microservices, including that “super custom” widget app
- Combine Istio with other pre-configured solutions from the Stackpoint Marketplace , including GitLab EE, Fabric8 and Kubeless
Matt Baldwin, founder and CEO of StackPointCloud, said: “We don’t look at Kubernetes as the end of the stack, but the platform on which a company’s entire cloud-native environment can live.
“To do this, users will need a service mesh. Our belief is that Istio will become the de facto service mesh, and our intention is to continue to enrich support for it within Stackpoint.”
Elasticsearch also enables drop-in logging and monitoring through Stackpoint’s platform, enforcing network policy and container runtime security.
