Microservices Connectivity and Traffic Management

Service Mesh Use Case

Gloo Mesh provides a robust solution for managing communication between microservices. With features like intelligent routing, load balancing, retries, timeouts, and circuit breaking, Gloo Mesh ensures reliable and efficient communication among microservices within a distributed application architecture. This use case is valuable in complex, dynamic environments where multiple microservices interact with each other.

Traditional Microservices Connectivity and Traffic Management

Traditional microservices connectivity and traffic management in Kubernetes rely on native features and additional tools. Kubernetes offers basic service discovery and load balancing through DNS-based service discovery and kube-proxy. Organizations use Ingress controllers like nginx-ingress or Traefik for managing external access and basic HTTP routing.

However, these tools may lack advanced features like intelligent routing and traffic splitting that Gloo Mesh offers. This can limit the flexibility and scalability of microservices architectures in complex Kubernetes environments.


Microservices Connectivity and Traffic Management with Gloo Mesh

Gloo Mesh is a service mesh solution for Kubernetes workloads, offering tools to manage service-to-service communication, traffic routing, and observability. It automates service discovery, facilitates communication between services, and provides traffic management features like intelligent routing based on criteria such as HTTP headers and request parameters.

Gloo Mesh supports traffic splitting, canary deployments, and circuit breaking for application performance and reliability. It integrates with observability tools like Prometheus, Grafana, and Jaeger, providing insights into request flows, latency, and error rates across microservices. Gloo Mesh helps organizations build and manage scalable microservices architectures effectively in Kubernetes environments.
