We have bunch of JAVA microservices deployed on VMs based on Vmware.
For intercommunication between the microservices, can we use Istio. I mean can we deploy Istio in complete VM based environment.
From the istio doc link, I know that Istio control plane can connect to VM based workloads but Istio control plane should be on k8s.
What I want is make use of Istio control + data plane for microservices running in non-contanerized environment i.e. VMs.
