Our mission is to simplify and enhance the security and connectivity of your cloud-native services as your applications expand into multi-cloud environments

Our Vision

In today’s cloud-native landscape, deploying applications to the cloud is streamlined through containerization. Developers containerize their code for portability and consistency, with Kubernetes efficiently orchestrating containers for simplified management, scalability, and automation. Despite these advancements, challenges persist in securely connecting and scaling services, known as the “last mile problem” in cloud app deployment.

The Last Mile Problem

The absence of a standardized control plane in application networking leads to significant friction in application delivery processes.

To address this challenge, open source projects like Cilium CNI, Istio with Ambient mode, Kubernetes, Envoy, and Spiffe/SPIRE—referred to as the CAKES stack—have emerged. However, leveraging these upstream open-source projects requires substantial in-house expertise and a high risk tolerance.

Gloo by seamlessly integrates these open source projects into a comprehensive cloud-native application networking platform, suitable for production use cases.
