Tetrate Service Bridge: Golden Gate Release

Centralized governance, local enforcement for your application traffic

We are pleased to announce the general availability of the Golden Gate release of our flagship product, Tetrate Service Bridge (TSB). TSB Golden Gate adds capabilities that enable application developers to define traffic and security controls for all their applications and APIs. Importantly, it adds Web Application Firewall (WAF) and API gateway capabilities to the Envoy data plane and lets application developers and platform owners collaborate on the same platform to configure them properly for their applications, while enabling an end-to-end zero trust implementation. There is an entirely new developer experience for configuring applications and troubleshooting configurations for both personae.

Building HA microservice with Istio service mesh

Building highly available (HA) and resilient microservices using Istio Service Mesh

What is High Availability in microservices

High availability systems are designed to provide continuous and uninterrupted service to the end customer by using redundant software performing similar functions. In highly available microservices, all the hosts must point to the same storage. So, in case of failure of one host, the workload in one host can failover to another host without downtime. The redundant software can be installed in another virtual machine (VM), or Kubernetes clusters in multicloud or hybrid cloud.

Zero Trust Network for Microservices

Today, every major organization is going through a massive digital transformation, adopting cloud, mobile, microservices, and container technologies to deliver services efficiently, meet critical business demands, and catch up with market expectations. Organizations’ Platform and DevOps teams have to model distributed and multi-cloud applications and services accessible from anywhere and anytime to be agile. This has given rise to two significant trends within the organizations:

  1. As a growing number of organizations adopt multi-cloud, they deploy their applications into the public cloud (Google, Amazon, Azure, etc.), which means that the data is out of their perceived safety of on-prem data centers.
  2. Organizations use microservices and distributed architecture to achieve agility and scale.

Multi-site failover with Tetrate Service Bridge

Microservices bring many benefits to any organization’s software practice. It can be efficiency, speed of changes and improvements, granularity of control over application behavior, solid and stable end-user experience with multiple instances of the service running in parallel, and also global reach with ability to get services closer to the user geographical location and more.

EKS is Anywhere and so is Tetrate

Tetrate works with Amazon EKS and EKS Anywhere to bring seamless connectivity and management to Kubernetes applications both on-premises and in the cloud. One of Tetrate’s founding goals is to enable our customers to manage their applications everywhere––from edge to workload, between services and VMs, in datacenters and the cloud––and to do it securely, reliably, and scalably while providing a consistent experience to IT ops and developers across these environments.

That goal aligns perfectly with EKS Anywhere, Amazon’s new Kubernetes offering that reaches beyond AWS. Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) is a managed compute platform for containers that allows customers to avoid the undifferentiated heavy lifting involved in using roll-your-own Kubernetes to run modern applications on AWS. EKS Anywhere is a new deployment option for Amazon EKS that enables customers to easily create and operate Kubernetes clusters on-premises, including virtual machines (VMs) and bare metal servers. With EKS Anywhere, Amazon offers its customers a consistent Kubernetes experience both on-premises and in the cloud.

TSB CI/CD Pipeline on Gitlab deploying application in AWS

As code gets signed off by a developer, it goes to the infrastructure teams that deploy it in the dev/test environment and then validate it via a number of tests. The developer’s skill set usually doesn’t include knowledge of Kubernetes, service mesh parameters, or Ingress gateways. Beyond knowledge, there is usually enterprise grade separation of roles: the developer shouldn’t have access to the network configuration, unnecessary monitoring tools, and certainly not security objects such as certificates.
