Open Service Mesh add-on for AKS is now generally available
Published date: 02 November, 2021
Open Service Mesh (OSM) add-on for Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) is now generally available in East US and West US regions. The capability will be rolled out to other regions by the end of December this year.
Open Service Mesh (OSM) is a lightweight and extensible cloud native open-source service mesh built on the CNCF Envoy project. OSM implements Service Mesh Interface to provide the most common service mesh features.
You will be able to experience first-class Azure support on a fully integrated cloud native application stack. You can use the service mesh capabilities from Open Service Mesh integrated natively with AKS to manage configurations such as traffic shifting, enabling mTLS, configuring access control policies, and monitoring and debugging of application communications for your microservices.
