Consul Service Mesh

Consul Connect

Linkerd Service Mesh

Installed @Linkerd in staging yesterday using Helm and Terraform. It was incredibly easy to setup and immediately helped me diagnose tricky latency issues between services. I have no idea why I didn’t do this sooner. Can’t wait to get this into production.”

Envoy Proxy Service Mesh

xDS protocol (Envoy’s Discovery Service Protocol)

  • xDS REST and gRPC protocol
  • “The gRPC project is adding support for the xDS protocol, think Envoy Proxy as a library, which will provide a subset of functionality without an external proxy. 🤯 The best part, xDS based control planes such as Istio, Traffic Director, and Consul Connect should just work.” Kelsey Hightower
