Cloud Foundry—a multicloud, IaaS-agnostic platform as a service with an active open source community—already has solutions for ingress routing for both HTTP and TCP traffic. Shubha Anjur Tupil and Aaron Hurley share a case study in which their company augmented its routing tier using Istio and Envoy. Join in to hear about the journey and the lessons learned along the way.

Topics include:

  • The motivation for using Istio and Envoy as the routing tier in Cloud Foundry
  • The architecture for using Istio and Envoy for ingress routing in Cloud Foundry
  • A demo of using Cloud Foundry with Istio Pilot in the control plane and Envoy as the edge router
  • Wins and challenges
  • Use cases for Istio across Cloud Foundry and ways forward
