Huawei Cloud

Follow these instructions to prepare a cluster for Istio using the Huawei Cloud Container Engine. You can deploy a Kubernetes cluster to Huawei Cloud quickly and easily in the Cloud Container Engine Console, which fully supports Istio.

Following the Huawei Cloud Instructions to prepare a cluster before manually installing Istio, proceed as follows:

  1. Log in to the CCE console. Choose Dashboard > Buy Cluster to open the Buy Hybrid Cluster page. An alternative way to open that page is to choose Resource Management > Clusters in the navigation pane and click Buy next to Hybrid Cluster.

  2. On the Configure Cluster page, configure cluster parameters. In this example, a majority of parameters retain default values. After the cluster configuration is complete, click Next: Create Node to go to the node creation page.

    The image below shows the GUI where you create and configure the cluster:

    Configure Cluster
  3. On the node creation page, configure the following parameters

    The image below shows the GUI where you create and configure the node:

    Configure Node
  4. Configure kubectl

  5. Now you can install Istio on CCE cluster according to install guide.

  6. Configure ELB to expose Istio ingress gateway if needed.

    • Create Elastic Load Balancer

    • Bind the ELB instance to istio-ingressgateway service

      Set the ELB instance ID and loadBalancerIP to istio-ingressgateway.

$ kubectl apply -f - <<EOF
