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 both to traffic that enters the cluster via Gloo Mesh Gateway (north-south), as well as to traffic across clusters via the Istio service mesh gateway (east-west).

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.
