East-west traffic policy configuration

With Gloo Mesh Enterprise, you can harness the power of the Envoy proxy for east-west traffic inside your service mesh.

Using the Gloo Mesh API helps you simplify your networking setup because you can write advanced configurations one time and apply the same configuration in multiple places and different contexts. For example, you can write a rate limit or authentication policy once. Then, you can apply this policy to all the east-west traffic of the services within your multicluster mesh. If you use Gloo Mesh Gateway, you can even apply the same policy to north-south traffic that enters the service mesh via the ingress gateway.

The following guides are examples of east-west traffic configuration on the TrafficPolicy custom resource. Before you begin, make sure that you understand the Traffic Policy Concepts.
