- Service Mesh Hub will add enterprise-grade and multi-cluster support for Istio 1.5
- Istio is an open source service mesh led by Google, IBM, and Lyft to connect, monitor and secure microservices
Software company Solo.io that helps organisations to adopt and operate innovative cloud native technologies has made Service Mesh Hub open source. It is a unified dashboard for installing, discovering, operating and extending a single service mesh or group of meshes with multi-cluster ‘virtual mesh’ orchestration and support for the new Istio 1.5.
Idit Levine, founder and CEO of Solo.io said, “Today’s announcement brings our vision to reality. Service mesh offers security, observability and control benefits, but comes with significant complexity. The Service Mesh Hub abstracts this complexity away from the users, allowing them to quickly adopt the technologies they need. We are introducing the Service Mesh Hub as an open-source project, hoping to build a community that will help accelerate service mesh adoption and facilitate collaboration, and to make multi-cluster and multi-mesh a reality for everyone who needs it.”
