Software applications have evolved from monoliths to microservices in a move towards becoming Cloud Native. The Cloud provides numerous benefits over traditional platforms. However, transitioning towards the Cloud puts a strain on engineers and DevOps as they need to tackle concerns that cut across applications and infrastructure.
Service Mesh technologies solve some key challenges in the Distributed Systems domain. With features like flexible networking, observability, security, etc., they greatly reduce the complexity in building and managing microservices. Istio and Envoy are prominent Open Source Service Mesh solutions that are currently driving the market.
