Aspen Mesh provides an Istio-based microservices solution for service providers and medium- to large-scale enterprises. Learn how to get started today!
Security should be ensured at all layers and work together with new clusters when introducing services running on top of a microservices infrastructure. It is paramount for all new points of exposure to be visible, which aids in pin-pointing security threats.
Aspen Mesh is deployed by an enterprise as an Istio-based microservices service mesh platform, or by a service provider as an SBA service mesh building block for 5G SA deployments. It may also be deployed by a service provider in conjunction with F5 BIG-IP Next Service Proxy for Kubernetes (SPK) for legacy 4G or 5G non-standalone (NSA) deployments in transition to a standalone 5G deployment.
For highly regulated businesses where data ownership and security are prioritized, and where legacy services maybe in transition.
A microservice deployment platform for HA and DR. Deploy workloads requiring high availability or disaster recovery capability.
Easily integrate data and services across various cloud-native architectures. Integrate security and visibility for seamless deployments.
Deploy a single cluster, multi-cluster, or multi-cloud deployment to provide services to multiple tenants, each isolated from each other.
