Istio helps you manage cloud-based deployments by providing an open-source service mesh to connect, secure, control, and observe microservices.

This topic describes how to expose an application running on the DKP cluster using the LoadBalancer (layer-4) service type.


Before you begin, verify the following:

  • You must have access to a Linux, macOS, or Windows computer with a supported operating system version.

  • You must have a properly deployed and running cluster.

  • Determine the name of the workspace where you wish to perform the deployment. You can use the dkp get workspaces command to see the list of workspace names and their corresponding namespaces.

  • Set the WORKSPACE_NAME environment variable to the name of the workspace where the cluster is attached:

    export WORKSPACE_NAME=<workspace_name>
