The multi-mesh vision, and how SuperGloo will bring it to life

The service mesh architecture, in which monitoring and controlling communication among microservices is implemented as a dedicated layer, independent from the microservices themselves, is gaining momentum among cloud users. Today, users can choose from several service mesh implementations, including Istio (backed up by Google, IBM and Lyft), Linkerd and Linkerd2 (CNCF projects), Consul Connect (from […]
