Gloo Mesh Enterprise

Welcome! Gloo Mesh Enterprise is a multicluster and multimesh management plane that is based on hardened, open-source projects like Envoy and Istio. With Gloo Mesh, you can unify the configuration, operation, and visibility of service-to-service connectivity across your distributed applications. These apps can run in different virtual machines (VMs) or Kubernetes clusters on premises or in various cloud providers, and even in different service meshes. The following figure shows the basic Gloo Mesh Enterprise architecture.

Figure: Gloo Mesh Enterprise provides multicluster, multimesh management to any Kubernetes platform for simple Istio service discovery, traffic shaping, secured app traffic like external auth, failover, locality-aware load balancing, and more.
