Istio ambient mesh making the noise

Most Istio users are excited about Istio ambient mesh. The sidecar-less Istio architecture is easier to manage and comparatively consumes fewer resources. 

IstioCon 2023 covers multiple talks on Istio ambient mesh that DevOps, SRE, and Platform engineers want to attend. So do not miss out. Register for the event for free and let us e-meet there.

(FYI: We have done a few blogs on Istio ambient mesh. You can check them out here:
