Built on the open-source Envoy client-side proxy, Gloo Edge is an open-source ingress controller capable of offering API gateway functionalities. As a feature-rich ingress controller, it balances the workload across multiple servers in Kubernetes and other containerized environments. Gloo Edge was developed keeping in mind the unique requirements of decentralized and highly dynamic computing platforms. Notably, this gateway can route requests directly to functions such as Lambda serverless compute service, Google Cloud, OpenFaaS serverless functions builder, legacy services (e.g., REST API calls), and cloud-native messaging systems (e.g., NATS). As a result, Gloo Edge is able to support both native and web apps. Moreover, with a flexible architecture, the gateway fits well with the rest of the popular open-source projects like K8s, Nomad workload orchestrator, Red Hat OpenShift container orchestration platform, Consul service networking platform, and HashiCorp Vault. It also supports fully automated discovery of new features, circuit-breaking at the network level to avoid unsafe request overloads, as well as rate-limiting. Gloo Mesh Enterprise, based on industry-standard Istio service mesh, helps unify and effectively manage communication between various distributed microservices applications. Gloo Edge's customer base includes names like ADP, American Express, BMW, ING, Informatica, Mattel, Pega, NTT Communications, SAP, Schneider Electric, and T-Mobile.
