The services we offer

The team at Altoros offers consulting services, as well as support and training for companies looking to automate the networking of microservices-based applications. We offer a full-cycle Istio service mesh implementation—from initial infrastructure assessment and setup to ongoing maintenance and effective troubleshooting. Our team of experts will assess the current deployment, eliminate potential bottlenecks, and identify security vulnerabilities to provide a detailed implementation plan for installing a service mesh on Kubernetes without downtime. Experienced Istio engineers at Altoros will monitor your infrastructure, provide guidance, perform regular maintenance, and help to fix any arising issues. Upskill the in-house team with instant knowledge sharing or custom deep-dive training. The deliverables include:

  • Customer’s issue categorization and analysis, support coverage, and task resolution
  • Istio implementation roadmap based on customer requirements and a proven methodology
  • Istio service mesh installation, configuration, and integration with logging, monitoring, alerting, and tracing tools
  • Istio security (authentication, authorization, audit tools, etc.)
  • Security policy development, implementation, and assessment
  • Ongoing Istio support, maintenance, and knowledge sharing

Fully managed service mesh solutions

Professional engineers at Altoros help to deploy the Istio service mesh on Kubernetes for managing microservices across hybrid or multicloud environments. Get a comprehensive understanding of how to handle the network traffic and utilize logging/monitoring tools to keep Istio running at maximum efficiency. In addition, experts at Altoros enforce security by implementing such measures as role-based access control, multifactor authentication, encryption, etc. Altoros will also provide all the necessary knowledge and vulnerability scanning/alerting tools to troubleshoot and eliminate arising issues early. Save time on manual infrastructure management and configuration while protecting sensitive customer data and delivering an uninterrupted user experience.

  • A service mesh on Kubernetes
  • Observability
  • Application enablement
  • Custom configurations
  • Training and support
  • Assessing the existing system (up to 2 days)
  • Installing the Istio control plane
  • Integrating the Istio control plane with continuous integration/delivery (CI/CD) systems

Outcomes: An implementation roadmap developed in accordance with customer requirements. A robust and secure Istio service mesh integrated with Kubernetes to manage containerized applications.

  • Installing the Kiali dashboard
  • Installing a Prometheus-based monitoring stack

Outcomes: A dashboard offering a centralized view of the Istio service mesh and performance metrics (e.g., latency, throughput), helping DevOps engineers to identify bottlenecks and troubleshoot issues.

  • Delivering a minimal viable product (MVP)
  • Integrating the Istio control plane with CI/CD systems

Outcomes: An MVP to get feedback from early users and design a strategy for improvement. Automated network configuration management that saves valuable time and resources by seamlessly integrating with CI/CD pipelines.

  • Configuring tracing
  • Setting up alerting
  • Delivering a documented runbook

Outcomes: Standardized documentation outlining how to perform all necessary tasks, as well as a troubleshooting guide that helps in-house teams to address common problems efficiently. Real-time monitoring with notifications and alerts that enable DevOps teams to keep track of the Istio service mesh state, as well as quickly identify and eliminate potential issues.

  • Istio and Kubernetes training backed up by hands-on practice
  • Site reliability engineering for Kubernetes and Istio
  • Ongoing support and maintenance

Outcomes: DevOps teams gain valuable experience around Istio and Kubernetes. Our certified experts mentor customer teams on deployment best practices and advanced concepts of a microservices-based architecture. In addition, we provide knowledge sharing on how to utilize the tooling available in the Istio service mesh. In-house engineers will learn top-level techniques to resolve any arising issues before they lead to downtime or disrupt user experience.
