Service Mesh


Distributed tracing with Envoy, Kuma, Grafana Agent, and Jaeger

As a cloud service provider, observability is a critical subject as it's strongly related to the availability of the services running on the platform. We need to understand everything that is happening on our platform to troubleshoot errors as fast as possible and improve performance issues. A year ago, while the platform was still in private beta, we faced a tough reliability issue: users were facing random 500 errors when accessing their applications.

Kong Builders- Sep 7 | Kong Hackathon Edition - Mesh & API Automation Hacks

All of September, we will be featuring the Kong Summit Hackathon with a live stream every Wednesday to help you get started with contributing to Kong! In this episode, Kat Morgan will be showing you how to contribute to Kong with #konggateway and #servicemesh and #gitops hack examples.

Kong Mesh 1.9 and Kuma 1.8 Released with Gateway GA, new CNI and More!

We are happy to announce the release of Kong Mesh 1.9 and Kuma 1.8! This release is packed with features and improvements such as observability for builtin Gateway, a complete rewrite of the CNI and projected service account tokens support. In order to take advantage of the latest and greatest in service mesh, we strongly suggest upgrading to Kong Mesh 1.9.

The Power of Event-Driven Architecture | Chris Parlette | TriggerMesh | Kongcast Episode 19

In this episode of Kongcast, Kaitlyn talks with Chris Parlette, Senior Solutions Architect at TriggerMesh about the evolution of microservices and event-driven architecture, who can benefit most from organizational future-proofing and modernization, and TriggerMesh as an event-driven integration platform.

Kong Inc. supports the newly announced Envoy Gateway project to reduce fragmentation in the Envoy ecosystem

Today, the Envoy community has introduced Envoy Gateway, a new project to better support Kubernetes deployments via the new Kubernetes Gateway API, which is the next generation Ingress specification in Kubernetes world. Kong has been deeply invested in the success of Envoy since we started developing Kuma in 2019 – now used in Kong Mesh (built on top of Kuma).

Tech Talk: Day Zero Service Mesh

In this session, Viktor Gamov walks you through how to easily set up #servicemesh across multiple environments and automatically enable #security and #observability on any network. About this Webinar Service mesh is the future of application connectivity. It delivers immediate value to any architecture by increasing application traffic’s security, reliability and observability. At the same time, it can be challenging to understand and deploy service mesh in production—but it doesn’t have to be this way.

A Platform-Based Future: Fireside Chat With Envoy Creator and Lyft Engineer Matt Klein

Recently, I was fortunate to have an insightful conversation with Matt Klein, Lyft software engineer and creator of Envoy, the popular open-source edge and service proxy for cloud-native applications. Envoy was the third project to graduate from the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), following Kubernetes and Prometheus. Before Lyft, Matt held positions at Microsoft, Amazon and Twitter, and served on the oversight committee and board of the CNCF.


Deploying Kong Mesh in Multiple Security Domains

It’s not uncommon for organizations to have to deploy solutions across (or among) multiple security domains. Here, we use the term “security domain” to refer to a segregated network environment, like a restricted internal network or a DMZ. This post will explore some design considerations when deploying Kong Mesh (and Kuma, the CNCF-hosted open source project upon which Kong Mesh is built) in environments with multiple security domains.
