We already have configured AKS with Ngnix Ingress Controller and now we are exploring service mesh implementation in AKS. For now, we are exploring Istio and Consul. Please help/guide me in below options for ingress -
- Ngnix Controller with Istio service mesh
- Istio gateway with Istio service mesh
Which of the above option is recommended? If we want to continue with Ngnix, how to configure it to talk to service mesh? Can it have mTLS with Pods proxy (envoy)? With Ngnix, will we be able to use all service mesh features?
I am kind of new to service mesh and Istio and will appreciate your quick help/guidance… I would to have a call if possible to discuss it. Many thanks…
