Malicious attacks on cloud applications are on the rise. Attacks like DDoS (distributed denial of service) overwhelm services with requests and cause widespread application outages. This results in end users not being able to access the service, leading to a bad user experience and increased churn rate.
Istio service mesh can implement rate limits to requests in Kubernetes to fend off attacks on services. DevOps and architects can set rate limits at the application, ingress gateway, or egress level using Istio, which ensures service availability at all times.
We’ll discuss the topic in detail in the webinar. Join us to learn:
- How to prevent application outages in Kubernetes using Istio rate limiting
- The 2 types of Istio rate limiting and their differences
- How to set up IP-based Istio rate limiting at the ingress gateway using Redis
- QA session
