Service Mesh

Service Mesh

A technology layer that enables developers to configure, monitor, and manage interactions between various services or microservices designed with interoperability in mind. Users can often choose various options from different providers to create a fully-customizable 'service mesh' that has all the functionality they require.

"The service mesh of the online store included a no-code website builder, inventory management, and payment microservices, each from different providers but working seamlessly via APIs."
