Buoyant announces new cloud service for Linkerd service mesh users

Linkerd service mesh creator Buoyant Inc. is looking to make some money with the public beta launch of its Buoyant Cloud service today. Buoyant is trying to commercialize the open-source Linkerd service mesh platform, which was created in 2016 and is hosted by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. That’s the same organization that also houses the popular Kubernetes container orchestration software project.
