Solo.io has announced updates to Gloo Mesh Enterprise. According to Solo.io, the latest updates simplify the process of setting up multi-cluster and multi-mesh service mesh environments.
Gloo Mesh Enterprise now includes Gloo Mesh Gateway, which is an API gateway. Other new features include observability improvements, improved security certificate management, added N-4 version support for Istio, and discovery of multiple available ingress gateways.
“While Istio provides a basic API gateway, many organizations have told us they need a more advanced solution that includes advanced security and traffic management as well as a developer portal to improve communication between teams,” said Idit Levine, founder and CEO, Solo.io. “We’ve addressed customer demand for more flexible and less centralized gateway features with an Istio-based platform for both service mesh and API gateway. Solo.io is delivering a more comprehensive option that allows companies to more efficiently drive the right outcomes with reduced overhead, fewer resources to manage, and less complexity.”
