Linkerd Enterprise delivers modern network security and reliability built in Rust, the language of the future. Powered by open source and designed for the enterprise.
Secure, authenticate, and encrypt all communication between application components. Linkerd Enterprise provides powerful zero-trust capabilities such as mutual TLS, strong workload identity (not IP addresses), authorization policies, and per-pod security boundaries. Auditable security policies and reports allow you to validate exactly how your system is protected and compliant
Meet high availability and disaster recovery and goals with a suite of powerful, dynamic traffic shifting capabilities. Linkerd Enterprise provides automated cross-cluster failover, circuit breaking, retries, timeouts, canary deploys, and a host of other features that allow you to build mission-critical applications without the downtime.
Decommission expensive application load balancers, reduce cross-zone network spend with intelligent load balancing, and automate your service mesh lifecycle. Linkerd Enterprise features powerful capabilities such as advanced cost-aware load balancing, lifecycle automation, and management tools that ensure your dollars are spent on business priorities, not upkeep, maintenance, and cloud network costs.
Buoyant created Linkerd in 2015 and have been the primary maintainers and contributors ever since. We've been investing in the open source Linkerd project and the community around it since the beginning of the project, and are committed to a healthy and engaged open source community and project.Visit linkerd.io
Buoyant is the foremost adopter of Rust in the cloud native space and is leading the charge to bring the security and performance benefits of Rust to Kubernetes adopters everywhere. Linkerd's innovative "microproxy" approach is powered by Rust. Rust allows us to deliver lightning-fast performance without the security vulnerabilities of languages like C and C++. We believe Rust is the language of the future.Visit rust-lang.org
Buoyant coined the term "service mesh" when it contributed Linkerd to the Cloud Native Computing Foundation in 2016, as the fifth-ever project accepted by the foundation. Since then, Linkerd has been a pillar of the CNCF ecosystem. In 2019, Linkerd became is a graduated project of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, a reflection of its maturity and broad impact across the entire cloud native ecosystem.Visit cncf.io
We have 26+ Kubernetes clusters across several Azure regions, each with 50+ microservices and 700 to 1,000 pods ... We were able to secure traffic between 22k pods with zero-config mTLS...[and] thanks to Linkerd...we are saving valuable engineering hours, which translates into more time...to focus on feature work.
Linkerd opened the door to introducing canary analysis to our CI/CD pipeline... [With] the Flagger operator, we could progressively increase traffic to new deployments while monitoring live metrics available in Linkerd. This drove our change failure rate to less than 5% while maintaining our on-demand deployments.
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.
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.
