Looking to bridge the gap between on-premises and cloud native applications?      Look no further than enterprise versions of the Istio open source service mesh.

Containerization of application code (orchestrated by Kubernetes) and migration to cloud are major enablers of the change from monolithic to microservices-based software, which is happening quickly. As these non-monolithic applications are created or transformed, they can be distributed across multiple execution environments -- both on-premises and in the cloud.

In order to solve scaling, security, and resilience problems, many organizations are turning to service meshes to address the challenges created by distributed applications.
