We wanted a resilient service mesh to bridge the gap between service discovery and load balancing in our multi-cloud platform. We love that Linkerd works consistently well in private and public cloud environments, with self-explanatory tools to handle ephemeral application deployments.

Operations Manager at Taboola

We needed a load balancer for a gRPC project and started with a different option. We needed a better service discovery implementation, so we chose Linkerd. It’s worked out great for us. We love the UI, stats, dtab testing, and log control. The YAML config format and single file deployment is great.

Linkerd in production since early 2017

Taboola is the world’s leading content discovery platform, serving 360B recommendations to over 1B unique visitors each month on the web’s most innovative publisher sites, including NBC, USA Today, The Weather Channel, and The Tribune.
