Istio provides mechanisms for enabling a multi-cluster architecture, however, there is no guidance on how one should compose their platforms i.e. how many clusters, should they be zonal or regional, should they by team or my environment etc. This presentation introduces the concept of Application Archetypes which provides prescriptive guidance for how to compose multi-cluster platforms (with Kubernetes and Istio) based on application needs. These are abstract functional (and non functional) requirements that an application needs from its underlying platform. Examples could be cost-efficiency, reliability, RPO/RTO, resiliency etc. Thinking in terms of archetypes enables application and platform owners to create architecture patterns that specifically fit their needs. This presentation introduces four primary application archetypes (zonal, regional, multi-regional and global) with types of applications best suited for each. And how these can be accomplished with Kubernetes and Istio.
