When building micro-services and multi-service Apps, we need a simple way to communicate privately between services.
We're currently finalizing our built-in Service Mesh and Service Discovery mechanism:
  • The
    Service Mesh
    provides natively encrypted communication between your services, in a similar fashion to a VPC
  • The
    Service Discovery
    automatically provides an internal DNS entry for each new service to use
In practice, if you have two HTTP services in your App called
, you will be able to simply call
by performing a simple
curl http://back/
. The Service Mesh will encrypt all communication using TLS and the
domain will automatically resolve.
If you're new to Service Mesh and Discovery, read our blog post on the concept.
