Touting the “industry’s first” Istio Service-Mesh-as-a-Service, Solo.io has launched Gloo Cloud, which offers the Gloo Mesh Istio service mesh and other tools minus the installation, maintenance and other associated operational tasks.

Indeed, while deemed as a necessary component for microservices management, the Istio service mesh itself can still pose operational challenges for DevOps teams.

“We saw that our customers were still responsible for installing and managing our product and Istio, making sure it worked and so on,”  Idit Levine, founder and CEO,  Solo.io, told The New Stack. “We saw that we could better help by managing these operations as well as Istio services for them. Basically, the only thing that the customer will need to do is to manage their own simple clusters and register them into the system.”

Gloo Mesh and other Solo.io software offer, among other things, a single gateway that integrates different Kubernetes-management open source components, including the  Envoy  distributed proxy, and the  Istio  open source service mesh. Solo.io’s range of software, for example, includes the API gateway Gloo Edge, and Gloo Mesh, which is a service mesh built on top of Istio with multiple cluster-management capabilities, as well as  Gloo Portal  for API definitions and policies, as well as web assembly capabilities.

Open Service Mesh: a Service Mesh Implementation from Microsoft

Microsoft has released open service mesh (OSM), an alpha service mesh implementation compliant with the SMI specification. OSM covers standard features of a service mesh like canary releases, secure communication, and application insights, similar to other service mesh implementations like Istio, Linkerd, or Consul.
