Istio Operator📜

Istio Operator is an open source operator that manages Istio service mesh installations, updates, and deletes in a deployed environment. Updates to the operator custom resource will apply the corresponding configuration changes.

How it works📜

IstioOperator is a custom resource that describes the desired stated of an Istio installation. The Istio Operator package/deployment manages and maintains the Istio service mesh installation based on the creation, deletion, and modification of any IstioOperator custom resources in the cluster.
