Designing a new routing tier for Cloud Foundry

Gabriel Rosenhouse <grosenhouse@...>


The Cloud Foundry Routing team have been developing an integration between Istio Pilot,  Envoy Proxy, and Cloud Foundry that has the potential to deliver a great deal of value to app developers and operators with less engineering effort than it would take to enhance our existing routers and control plane. If this initiative is successful, these technologies will eventually replace our existing routing subsystems, and lay the foundation for additional features of Istio, including service mesh encryption, policy, and traffic management.

We have prepared a preliminary, high-level engineering design document and we welcome your feedback as comments in the doc [1] or in reply to this email. Another document that addresses our motivations and goals will be shared soon.
