NGINX Service Mesh (NSM) is now available in a development release -- download it for free and give us your feedback! NSM is a fully integrated lightweight service mesh that leverages a data plane powered by NGINX Plus to manage container traffic in Kubernetes environments.
We are pleased to introduce a development release of NGINX Service Mesh (NSM), a fully integrated lightweight service mesh that leverages a data plane powered by NGINX Plus to manage container traffic in Kubernetes environments. NSM is available for free download. We hope you will try it out in your development and test environments, and look forward to your feedback on GitHub.
Adopting microservices methodologies comes with challenges as deployments scale and become more complex. Communication between the services is intricate, debugging problems can be harder, and more services imply more resources to manage.
NSM addresses these challenges by enabling you to centrally provision:
NSM secures applications in a zero‑trust environment by seamlessly applying encryption and authentication to container traffic. It delivers observability and insights into transactions to help organizations deploy and troubleshoot problems quickly and accurately. It also provides fine‑grained traffic control, enabling DevOps teams to deploy and optimize application components while empowering Dev teams to build and easily connect their distributed applications.
NSM consists of a unified data plane for east‑west (service-to-service) traffic and a native integration of the NGINX Plus Ingress Controller for north‑south traffic, managed by a single control plane.
The control plane is designed and optimized for the NGINX Plus data plane and defines the traffic management rules that are distributed to the NGINX Plus sidecars.
We announce eight solutions that unleash developer speed without sacrificing the control infrastructure teams require. Get the details on NGINX Controller, App Protect, Ingress Controller, Service Mesh, and Analytics Cloud Service; F5 DNS Cloud Services; and Red Hat integrations.
For teams to monitor, support, and to maintain these services is becoming a challenge so most enterprises have invested in some kind of microservices management tool.
Learn how to Use NGINX Service Mesh for Secure Access Control. If services in a Kubernetes environment exchange sensitive data, it's important to control communication among them. With NGINX Service Mesh, it takes less than 10 minutes to set up fine‑grained control. Watch the video demo and check out our step-by-step tutorial.
