We had just begun conversations with Barclays and needed to prove we could scale to meet their needs. Linkerd gave us the confidence to adopt a scalable cloud-based infrastructure knowing it would be reliable — any network instability was now handled by Linkerd. This, in turn, allowed us to agree to a latency and success-rate-based SLA. Linkerd was the right place in the stack for us to monitor internal SLOs and track the performance of our software stack.
We started with Linkerd and it turned out to be so easy to get started that we gave up on evaluating the other two — we loved it from the get-go. Within hours of stumbling over it online, we had deployed it on our dev environment. Three more days and it was up and running on our new service running in production.
