Workload Onboarding

Workload Onboarding is a TSB feature that automates onboarding workloads deployed outside of Kubernetes into the service mesh.

For example, you can use it to onboard workloads deployed on VMs (or perhaps VMs from auto-scaling groups) that are not part of your Kubernetes clusters.

:::note The Workload Onboarding feature is currently an alpha feature.

It is quite possible that it does not support all possible deployment scenarios. Most notably, it does not yet support the use of Iptables for traffic redirection. You should configure your Istio sidecar and your application as necessary.

At the moment, this feature supports onboarding workloads from the following environments:

  • workloads deployed on AWS EC2 instances
  • workloads deployed on AWS Auto-Scaling Groups
  • workloads deployed as AWS ECS tasks
  • workloads deployed on-premise :::
