Why Tetrate Service Bridge

Enterprise-ready with the manageability, reliability and security required for production environments.

A Single Management Plane For All Your Microservices

Tetrate Service Bridge builds upon the advantages of 100% upstream Istio and Envoy with a powerful UI that allows you to connect, manage and secure an entire application fleet from a single pane of glass. Platform teams get end-to-end visibility into their application fleet in order to spot and fix issues before they affect customers. And developers are free to focus on their code with a consistent framework in place.

Business Agility

Give Developers the tools they need to confidently deploy and release faster. Gain insight into steady-state app behavior with the visibility needed to proactively detect and correct issues before an outage occurs.

Security and Isolation

Tetrate Service Bridge goes beyond traditional network segmentation to ensure it’s safe for applications to talk to each other. Multi-tenancy provides guardrails for teams working in shared environments to operate safely.

Business Continuity

Tetrate Service Bridge provides the resiliency primitives, visibility and cross-cluster traffic management needed to prevent outages and ensure applications are highly available and resilient in any environment.

Hybrid And Multi-Cloud Connectivity

Tetrate Service Bridge is built specifically for heterogeneous, multi-site deployments, enabling seamless cross-cluster communication. Control how traffic arrives at your clusters with edge and application gateways. Manage application connectivity with simple, consistent workflows, regardless of where they’re deployed.

Ship code faster by standardizing the way your applications communicate. Replace patchworks of custom gateways. Instead, offload security, connectivity and observability to the mesh to increase agility and operational efficiency across your organization.

Seamlessly manage application connectivity across your entire infrastructure – including multiple clusters, multiple clouds and on premises – from a single point of control. Tetrate Service Bridge was built from the ground up to support hybrid network and compute environments, reducing the complexity of managing application networking across your entire environment.

Eliminate the difference between north-south and east-west traffic. Tetrate Service Bridge combines edge, ingress and service mesh management together, eliminating the need for different products focused on gateway vs. service mesh management. With Tetrate, there is just application traffic.

Comprehensive application connectivity coordinates policy, configuration, observability and lifecycle across your entire application network.

  • Global traffic routing, rate-limiting, load balancing and failover
  • Fault tolerance capabilities like timeouts, retries, and circuit breakers
  • Enforce authentication, authorization, and encryption including mTLS
  • Fine-grained traffic control across all your compute clusters
  • Traffic shifting between VMs and Kubernetes

Pre-Built Zero Trust Architecture For Microservices

Simplify your journey to Zero Trust with Tetrate Service Bridge, a single platform used to connect, monitor and secure microservices at scale – integrated with the tools you need to implement a Zero Trust architecture. Vetted workflows allow Platform and Security teams to effectively manage policies enterprise-wide.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and Tetrate have co-authored a series of papers to define the standards and deployment recommendations for Zero Trust in the enterprise. These special publications include the SP 800-204A-C series and SP 800-207A on security for microservices applications which offer recommendations for implementing Zero Trust architecture using a service mesh. In addition, SP 800-207: Zero Trust Architecture defines the tenets of Zero Trust network security and offers recommendations for how to adopt it in your organization. Tetrate enables you to move move beyond security features, to a NIST endorsed Zero Trust Architecture.

Take security concerns out of the application code stack and put them in the application networking platform where they belong. Give your security team centralized control of policy for all your applications. Free your application developers from implementing security controls.

Give application teams the tools they need to manage their services without stepping on each other’s toes. Reduce the risk of accidental misconfiguration or malicious attack by limiting access to only the resources each team needs. Maintain agility while ensuring security across your organization by enforcing consistent global policies while delegating control to individual application teams.

Tetrate Service Bridge provides Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS 140-2) compliant modules wherever encrypted communication is required. In addition, out-of-the box controls ensure compliance with regulatory requirements. Audit log exports are also available to provide proof of current and historical adherence to governance and compliance standards.

Aggregated Multi-Cluster Observability

Tetrate Service Bridge makes it easy to monitor the health and performance of your applications as well as apply SLOs across you entire application fleet. This detailed telemetry enables operators to observe service behavior and empowers them to efficiently troubleshoot, maintain and optimize their applications.

 

 

See the topology of your services and their dependency relationships to understand application health at a glance. Correlated metrics, traces, logs and lifecycle events make it easier to troubleshoot applications and reduce MTTI and MTTR.

Get a consistent set of both service and app-level signals from all your applications. Ensure alerts get to the right teams so they can take action as performance degradation starts, before your users notice. Skywalking under the hood means data collection will scale efficiently with your applications.

Give app teams a view of their service topology and dependencies at a glance. Provide them the tools they need to manage their SLOs. Ensure alerts get to the right people.

Collect consistent baseline metrics for all applications without having to get them from each app team. Create, measure and monitor both app and service-level SLOs across all your fleet. Use that in-depth knowledge of app behaviors to recognize anomalies and take action before users notice.

Reliability And High Availability

Ensure business continuity with Tetrate Service Bridges’s built-in scalability and high availability capabilities. View the context of your applications, their dependencies and where they are deployed to understand global health and manage SLOs across your entire fleet.

Offload reliability concerns to the mesh by using built-in recovery features like timeouts, retries and circuit breakers. Increase the ability to mitigate cascading failures with client-side load balancing. Decrease latency and minimize egress costs with locality-aware load balancing that ensures local traffic stays local.

Increase release cadence with built-in tools to measure when it’s safe to release newly deployed versions of your services to live traffic. Tetrate Service Bridge gives you the confidence to move quickly plus the tools to safely roll back to a good state when needed.

Easily shift traffic from sick clusters to healthy ones, before your users notice. Equip app teams with the tools they need to understand their applications’ health and take action on early indicators with the best information possible at their fingertips.

Take the labor and risk out of updating new app versions as well as your underlying mesh infrastructure. Give your app teams the primitives for fast, safe application updates. Make it easy and safe for platform operators to keep application infrastructure up-to-date.
