Press Release – Tetrate Works with Amazon Web Services to Bring Enterprise-grade Envoy to AWS App Mesh Users

Support for AWS App Mesh will be showcased for the first time at Service Mesh Day on March 29, 2019 in San Francisco

SAN FRANCISCO – March 27, 2019Tetrate​, the ​recently launched​ enterprise service mesh company, today announced its support for the launch of Amazon Web Services (AWS) App Mesh, a cloud service that makes it easy to run microservices by providing consistent visibility and network traffic controls for each microservice in an application. The two companies will demonstrate AWS App Mesh and Tetrate GetEnvoy for Global 2000 enterprises for the first time at ​Service Mesh Day on March 29, 2019 in San Francisco.

Tetrate GetEnvoy​, which provides certified builds of Envoy, can now be used by AWS App Mesh customers with Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS), and Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (Amazon EKS). This allows customers to have one set of verified and approved builds of Envoy across their private cloud data center and AWS, increasing reliability of ​Envoy​ in microservices environments.

According to a recent Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) ​survey​, ​Envoy​ production usage in large organizations jumped from four percent to 24 percent between March – October 2018. Tetrate first ​announced​ its GetEnvoy product on March 13, 2019 for private cloud users.

“AWS App Mesh brings end-to-end visibility and controls for high availability to microservices running on AWS,” said Deepak Singh, Director, Compute Services, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “​Customers using AWS App Mesh can use Tetrate for a consistent experience of connectivity, as well as easier traffic shifting for migration or disaster recovery to run microservices in data centers and AWS.”

“Today, many customers are running applications on the cloud,” said Varun Talwar, CEO of Tetrate. “We are very excited about our support for the launch of AWS App Mesh because it enables consistency of experience for customers as it relates to understanding performance of applications and configuring their availability. We will continue to work with AWS to promote enterprise adoption of Envoy and service mesh.”

By leveraging AWS App Mesh, Tetrate can generate continuous improvements for hybrid cloud customers who can use service mesh infrastructure to control, manage, observe and secure hundreds of services at a time.
