In this scenario, you will learn how to deploy Istio Service Mesh to Kubernetes. Istio is an open platform that provides a uniform way to connect, manage, and secure microservices. Istio supports managing traffic flows between microservices, enforcing access policies, and aggregating telemetry data, all without requiring changes to the microservice code
The scenario uses the sample BookInfo application. The application has no dependencies on Istio and demonstrates how any application could build upon Istio without modifications.

Launch Kubernetes Cluster
To start, launch the Kubernetes cluster. This will launch a two-node Kubernetes cluster with one master and one node.
Once started, you can get the status of the cluster with
