BookInfo app demo with Envoy as the edge router in CF
The routing team has been working on integrating Envoy and Istio in the routing control plane. Yesterday we were able to run the BookInfo demo with Envoy as the edge router ( still using DNS load balancing for E-W traffic). See the attached GIF for a micro-demo and see the requests load balanced between the three versions of the reviews app (the black stars, red stars, and no stars with a written review).
While this is test-driven and CI'd functionality, we want to clarify that istio-release is considered experimental/alpha.
