Multi-Cluster Service Mesh Role-Based-Access-Control

In the previous posts, we covered how Gloo Mesh (previous known as Service Mesh Hub) makes it easy to federate the identity across clusters to allow cross-cluster communication, failover and access control based on policies. RBAC in Kubernetes In large organizations, several teams are using the same Kubernetes cluster. They use Kubernetes RBAC to define who can […]

Multi-cluster global access control for Kubernetes and Service Mesh

In this blog series, we will dig into specific challenge areas for multi-cluster Kubernetes and service mesh architecture, considerations and approaches in solving them. In a previous blog post we covered Identity Federation for Multi-Cluster Kubernetes and Service Mesh which is the foundation for multi-cluster global access control. We explained how to setup each Istio cluster with a different […]

Zero Trust Application Networking with Envoy Proxy

Security is an evergreen requirement for any system, and in recent years, the concept of Zero Trust has gained in popularity as a different security model to protect organizations and their IT portfolio from the increasing business risk of security incidents. Traditional security practices and tools are designed to secure the perimeter and by default […]

Identity Federation for Multi-Cluster Kubernetes and Service Mesh

In this blog series, we will dig into specific challenge areas for multi-cluster Kubernetes and service mesh architecture, considerations and approaches in solving them. The previous blog posts focused on aspects of Failover and Fallback routing from a service mesh perspective and in comparison (and combined with) multi-cluster API gateway instances. In this blog post we start looking at […]

Handling Service to Service Failover at the Edge or Service Mesh

In this blog series, we will dig into specific challenge areas for multi-cluster Kubernetes and service mesh architecture, considerations and approaches in solving them. The previous blog post covered Multi-Cluster Service Mesh Failover and Fallback Routing as failover routing is one of the many reasons organizations look to adopt service mesh in addition to service to service communication, tracing, […]

Multi-Cluster Service Mesh Failover and Fallback Routing

In this blog series, we will dig into specific challenge areas for multi-cluster Kubernetes and service mesh architecture, considerations and approaches in solving them. In our first post, we looked at service discovery and in this post we’ll look at failover and fallback routing across multiple clusters.  What is failover and fallback routing? When building […]

Open Service Mesh ingress with Gloo API Gateway (w/ Video!)

Last week, Microsoft Azure announced a new open-source project called Open Service Mesh. OSM is a new service-mesh implementation based on Envoy Proxy (yay!) that implements the Service Mesh Interface (SMI). SMI, as you’ll recall, is heavily inspired from our service-mesh abstraction vision that we predicted back in November 2018. Solo.io Service Mesh Hub is […]
