Making Web Assembly a first-class citizen on Gloo Mesh Enterprise Beta

WebAssembly (abbreviated Wasm) is a binary instruction format for a stack-based virtual machine. Wasm is designed as a portable compilation target for programming languages, enabling deployment on the web for client and server applications. At Solo.io, we are very excited about Web Assembly as a way to extend an Envoy-based data plane in frameworks like API Gateways (Gloo) and Service Meshes (Istio, AppMesh, […]

Hoot – Understanding Open Policy Agent

Kubernetes and cloud-native architecture has introduced abstractions at different layers of the application stack, starting with containers abstracting the code from the OS, networking, and more. Microservices being distributed, dynamic, and polyglot means that abstracting these operational instructions away from the business logic allows them to be language agnostic of the application code, configured, and […]

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 […]

Step by Step: Datastax Cassandra with Istio and SNI routing

Cassandra is a very popular “NoSQL” database. Cassandra is a highly distributed document database that can be tolerant to certain types of failures and scaled for data-intensive microservices. As Kubernetes has become the defacto container deployment platform for microservices, running stateful workloads like Cassandra is a common choice. There are quite a few guides showing […]

[Tutorial] External Authorization of Service Requests in Istio Service Mesh

Istio is an open source and platform-independent service mesh that provides functionality for traffic management, policy enforcement and telemetry collection in Kubernetes application environments. As a service mesh, Istio solves the service-to-service communication for the applications deployed within the cluster. Istio has a robust feature set to address these east-west traffic concerns.  In fact, we are huge Istio […]

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, […]
