Demystifying Kuma Service Mesh

DZone

Service mesh emerged as a response to the growing popularity of cloud-native environments, microservices architecture, and Kubernetes. It has its roots in the three-tiered model of application architecture. While Kubernetes helped resolve deployment challenges, the communication between microservices remained a source of unreliability. Under a heavy load, the application could break if the traffic routing, load balancing, etc., were not optimized.
