Kubernetes out of the box is a strong platform for running and coordinating large collections of services, containers, and applications. As is, Kubernetes is powerful for many solutions.

However, Istio is a supercharger for Kubernetes. Once you see it you will realize what we have been missing.

Istio is an open, platform-independent service mesh that manages communications between services in a transparent way. With a distributed architecture many things can fail, slow down and become less secure. Istio helps to shore up the weaknesses of a distributed platform.
