Lyft’s Envoy and the Emerging Prospects of Service Mesh Architecture
How best should an organization transition its monolith architecture into a set of microservices? Apparently, it might not have to. Matt Klein, principal software engineer at car-sharing service Lyft, told The New Stack at PagerDuty Summit 2017 that a startup can develop its own monolith more easily than it can develop complex microservices. But with an underlying service mesh architecture, such as Lyft’s Envoy, that monolith can still be providing service-oriented functions to customers in the same way, and probably without service degradation.
