Envoy and Jaeger Join The Family!
Two weeks ago at Open Source Summit in Los Angeles, Lyft and Uber shared the stage as they announced the donation of their projects (Envoy and Jaeger respectively) to the CNCF.
Envoy is a service mesh for cloud native applications, which provides a dedicated infrastructure layer for making service-to-service communication safe, fast, and reliable.
Jaeger is a distributed tracing tool that gives developers the ability to understand what is happening inside the flow of an application. This is critical for monitoring application performance and health.
