Public preview: Open Service Mesh (OSM) add-on for AKS
Published date: March 31, 2021
Open Service Mesh (OSM) add-on for Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) is now available in public preview. With this add-on, customers are able to use the service mesh capabilities from OSM integrated natively with the AKS managed service offering.
OSM is a lightweight and extensible cloud native service mesh built on the CNCF Envoy project. OSM implements Service Mesh Interface to provide the most common service mesh features.
The OSM add-on provides AKS customers an easy and simple way to achieve key service mesh configurations such as traffic shifting, enabling mTLS, configuring access control policies, and monitoring and debugging of application communications for their microservices.
