Service Mesh


eBPF: The future of the service mesh and network innovation

The conversations around eBPF and how this technology will shape the future of the service mesh caused a huge buzz in the last year — yes, bee pun intended. eBPF lets you run sandboxed programs in an operating system kernel. Imagining how eBPF could improve the service mesh brings exciting possibilities, but it also raises security and operational concerns given the current state and limitations of eBPF.

Zero-trust security with Kong Mesh

Zero-trust security with Kong Mesh Brought to you by @KongInc Senior Solutions Engineer Ahmed Koshok. In this video, Ahmed explains the core concepts of zero-trust security and demonstrates how Kong Mesh enables you to implement zero-trust security for your microservices. Kong Mesh is a service mesh built on top of the Envoy proxy that provides secure communication between microservices. With Kong Mesh, you can encrypt traffic between services, implement fine-grained access controls, and enforce security policies at the network layer.

Intelligent Load Balancing and Reliability with Kong Mesh

Intelligent Load Balancing and Reliability with Kong Mesh Brought to you by @KongInc Senior Solutions Engineer Ahmed Koshok. Discover how Kong Mesh provides intelligent load balancing and reliability for your microservices as Ahmed Koshok demonstrates how Kong Mesh enables you to distribute traffic across multiple instances of your microservices and ensures high availability. Kong Mesh is a service mesh built on top of the Envoy proxy that provides advanced load balancing and reliability features for microservices.

Moderna's Nathaniel Reynolds on Service Mesh, Open Source, and AI for Developers

In this post, Nathaniel Reynolds, Associate Director of Informatics Architecture & DevOps at Moderna Therapeutics, talks about service mesh, removing limitations with open source, and how AI helps developers do more. No one can predict the future, but here’s a safe bet: in the next five to ten years, we aren’t going to have fewer applications. We’re going to have more. And that means connectivity requirements are going to get bigger and bigger over time.


Kong Mesh & Kuma 2.1 released with full suite of next-gen policies

We’re excited to announce the release of Kong Mesh and Kuma 2.1! In this release, we’re shipping the full suite of new and improved policies announced (and started) in 2.0. Additionally, we’re launching some more great UX improvements in the UI and a host of smaller fixes. In order to take advantage of the latest and greatest in service mesh, we strongly suggest upgrading to Kong Mesh 2.1. Upgrading is simple through kumactl or Helm.

The Magic of Service Mesh - What Your Sidecar Does for You

Magicians never reveal their secrets. . . but today, we reveal everything! Behold the mysterious Envoy and the magic of mesh in Kong Mesh and its open source sibling, Kuma. Spoiler: the secret is in the sidecar! Join this mesh-by-example talk to learn about how the service mesh manages certificate rotation, cross-zone communication, and service discovery. This talk will explain to service mesh newcomers what application developers can offload to the sidecar proxy — and why it’s a cost-effective way to achieve your reliability and security objectives.

Debugging Applications in Production with Service Mesh

As an application developer, have you ever had to troubleshoot an issue that only happens in production? Bugs can occur when your application gets released into the wild, and they can be extremely difficult to debug when you cannot reproduce without production data. In this blog, I am going to show you how to safely send your production data to development applications deployed using a service mesh to help you better debug and build production proof releases.

[Tech Talk] Advanced Service Mesh - Build and Manage Multi-Cloud Applications Using Kuma

A service mesh helps to make service communication more secure, reliable and traceable in distributed system architectures. In connection with the topic of service mesh, we often think of terms such as microservices, containers or Kubernetes; i.e. terms from the orbit of modern design methods, architectural approaches or technologies. Of course, everything is usually cloud-based.

Kong Mesh and Kuma 2.0 Released with eBPF Support, Next-Gen Policies

Today we’re excited to announce the release of Kong Mesh and Kuma 2.0. With this new major release, we’re announcing the first availability of our next-generation policies, in addition to new eBPF capabilities. 2.0 is also significant as we have unified the version scheme between Kong Mesh and Kuma. Previously, Kuma versions had an n-1 version naming convention when compared with Kong Mesh.
