Containers & Service Mesh
A service mesh is a new paradigm that provides containers and microservices-based applications with services integrated directly within the compute cluster. A service mesh provides monitoring, scalability, and high availability services for modern applications through APIs instead of using discrete appliances. Implementing a service mesh layer ensures that communication among containerized infrastructure services is fast, reliable and secure. It is a configurable, low‑latency infrastructure layer that handles service-to-service communication.
