DevOps teams typically must choose among literally hundreds of tools and platforms when shifting operations to a microservices architecture. With these challenges in mind,, a leading service mesh provider, offers tools integrated with Envoy, Istio and other principal Kubernetes-management building blocks to remove many of the enormous complexities involved in the process of stitching them all together. recently launched Gloo Cloud, Software as a Service for service mesh. The startup now also offers what it calls a “single-pane-of-glass view” for multicluster observability with Gloo Mesh and completely integrated Istio management with the Gloo Edge 2.0 API gateway. In addition, announced full support for gRPC specifications, making its Gloo Portal the only user interface available for the open source universal RPC framework, the company says. and its releases are intended to help organizations move closer to a single API model to manage the entire spectrum of cloud native deployments, which was also a main theme of SoloCon 2021,’s virtual conference that took place earlier this month.

The main dilemma organizations face when deploying multiple Kubernetes clusters and microservices is “how to manage them all through a single API,” Idit Levine, founder and CEO,, told The New Stack. They also require observability across all microservices, security processes and controls and complete accessibility for their entire range of microservices — again, through a single API. Deployment, observability and security, “are three things we are focusing on,” Levine said.
