5 Things to Know About Service Mesh Performance
Service Mesh architectural patterns are bringing in evolutionary change in microservice architectural patterns, no doubt anymore. Cloud native deployments across industries are in various stages of adopting service mesh — evaluating, designing, integrating, deploying and some in production. Many of the highly impactful advantages of service mesh have been very vividly described across internet — load balancing, circuit breaking, health checks, security offloads, customized network management and so on. Figure 1 (source) provides a view on complexity in a service mesh.
What is Unique about Multi-Access Edge Computing (MEC)?
Some of the popular terms in Edge computing we get to hear — MEC Edge, MEC node, MEC App, MEC platform, MEC host, etc. When I first heard about Multi-Access Edge Computing, I was looking to figure out if each of these terms have a specific list of attributes. Why is it named Multi-Access and not something else? Why is it so popular today? Many consortia are working on Edge architectures, what is so unique about this one? If you are someone looking to know more about MEC, this article is for you.
