Istio in 2020
A vision statement and roadmap for Istio in 2020. Istio solves real problems that people encounter running microservices. Even very early pre-release versions helped users debug the latency in their architecture, increase the reliability of services, and transparently secure traffic behind the firewall.
Last year, the Istio project experienced major growth. After a 9-month gestation before the 1.1 release in Q1, we set a goal of having a quarterly release cadence. We knew it was important to deliver value consistently and predictably.
With three releases landing in the successive quarters as planned, we are proud to have reached that goal.
