Supported Service Meshes


Layer5 Service Mesh Management

Service Mesh Lifecycle Management

Meshery manages the provisioning, configuration and operation your service mesh. While supporting different types of service meshes, Meshery also offers a simple way to explore each service mesh and compare them using bundled sample applications.

Interoperate multiple service meshes with service mesh adapters provision, configure, and manage their respective service meshes. Meshery is an implementation of the Service Mesh Interface (SMI).

Layer5 Service Mesh Configuration Management

Service Mesh Configuration Management

Assess your service mesh configuration against deployment and operational best practices with Meshery's configuration validator. Onboard your workload onto the service mesh with confidence. Check your service mesh configuration for anti-patterns and avoid common pitfalls.

Adhering to Service Mesh Standards

Service Mesh Performance (SMP) In an effort to produce service mesh agnostic tooling, Meshery uses the [service mesh performance]( as a common format to capture and measure your mesh's performance against a universal service mesh performance index. As a partner of VMware's Multi-Vendor Service Mesh Interoperation (Hamlet) and Service Mesh Interface (SMI), Meshery participates in advancing service mesh adoption through the standardization of APIs.

Layer5 Service Mesh Performance Management

Standardized Service Performance Management

Meshery is the service-mesh-neutral utility for uniformly managing the performance of services and the meshes that run them. As an implementation of the Service Mesh Performance (SMP), Meshery enables you to measure the value provided by a service mesh in the context of the overhead incurred.

Conforming to Service Mesh Interface (SMI)

Meshery provides tooling to validate any service mesh that claims to implement and SMI Validation, Verification, and Conformance with Mesheryconform to SMI specifications. Working in accordance with the SMI Conformance project, it essentially provides:

✔︎ Defines compliant behavior.
✔︎ Produces compatibility matrix.
✔︎ Ensures provenance of results.
✔︎ Runs a set of conformance tests.
✔︎ Built into the participating service mesh’s release pipeline.
✔︎ Provides Learn Layer5 sample application used for validating test assertions.
