Leverage a Network Service Mesh

Gain Observability Across Clouds

Discover the relationships and observe behaviors of services, data, and users. Gain insight into service-to-service communications and establish baselines for application health while letting Ops teams set metrics for predictable response time (PRO).

Bring Your Management Together

Enable unified management, global policies, and seamless communications across complex, multi-cluster mesh topologies managed by disparate teams using service mesh federation.

Unify Operations Environment-Wide

Empower developers, infrastructure operations, and security teams to drive efficiency via common policy and infrastructure across multiple cloud providers— while maintaining autonomous developer workflows.

What Can Tanzu Service Mesh Do for Your Enterprise Apps?

Run Distributed Apps on Multi-Cloud

Connect and secure services wherever they’re deployed, on any platform and on any cloud. Run distributed applications across Kubernetes clusters on multiple clouds for OPEX savings and performance.

Shorten Dev Cycles and Improve Quality

Accelerate feature development and elevate software quality with service mesh technology. Shift traffic to perform A/B testing, blue-green deployments, and application upgrades with the assurance that you can pause or rollback an upgrade.

Achieve Business Continuity

Provide high availability to services using active-active mode across multiple Kubernetes clusters on multiple clouds with Global Side Load Balancing (GSLB). Avoid costly and under-utilized infrastructure — unlike other active-standby implementations.

Manage and Encrypt Traffic

Protect data in transit between on-premises and public cloud resources with encryption. Leverage fine-grained encryption options for services managed by the mesh to meet compliance requirements.
