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 roll back 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.
