Vendors Stake Out Positions in Emerging Istio Service Mesh Landscape
This IDC Market Perspective provides an overview of technology developments, vendor strategies, positioning relating to Istio, and open source service mesh under the auspices of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF).
"Istio recently reached 1.0 status as an open source project, but it already has attracted a vibrant community encompassing a wide range of developers from enterprises, service providers, cloud giants, and infrastructure vendors. Even at this nascent stage of development, Istio is widely recognized as the service mesh of record for Kubernetes, and the need for services meshes in microservices environments will only grow. Vendors recognize the potential of Istio, and they are formulating strategies and extending their portfolios to bring value to the community." — Brad Casemore, IDC research vice president, Datacenter Networks
