Why Service Mesh

If you’re scaling microservices on Kubernetes, it’s only a matter of time until you’ll need a service mesh to get the most out of your distributed systems.

According to IDC, by 2022, 90 percent of all apps will feature microservices architectures that improve the ability to leverage third-party code and 35 percent of all production apps will be cloud native.

Cloud and container disruptions are driving continued growth in the importance of automation and orchestration – 62% report leveraging a range of automation and orchestration toolsets to help speed application development, deployment, and delivery.


Gartner recommends “shifting at least 10% (and likely 25%) of personnel and product investments away from legacy ADC technologies — typically under I&O budgets — toward service mesh software efforts.”

— Gartner, Innovation Insight for Service Mesh, Andrew Lerner, Anne Thomas, December 2018
