Introducing Autopilot — An open source project for adaptive service mesh

The many benefits of service mesh come from it taking full control of the communication network within a cluster. However, this increases your vulnerability to misconfiguration and human errors. There are fantastic tools to simplify service mesh configuration and improve resilience, but they all depend on continuous actions from a human operator. We believe that […]
