# The universal Envoy service mesh
for distributed service connectivity

# The open-source control plane for service mesh,
delivering high performance and reliability with Envoy

Kuma 1.0.5 has been released! With one-click transparent proxying support for VMs in universal mode, a new Retry policy and performance improvements! — Get Started

# Kubernetes, VMs & Multi-Mesh

CRD + RESTful Interface diagram

Built on top of Envoy, Kuma is a modern control plane for Microservices & Service Mesh for both K8s and VMs, with support for multiple meshes in one cluster.

# Easy To Use

# One cluster for the entire organization

Designed for the enterprise architect, Kuma ships with a native multi-mesh support to support multiple teams from one control plane. Combined with native service discovery, global and remote deployments modes, and native integration with APIM solutions, Kuma checks all the boxes.

  • Built for the enterprise architect for mission-critical use-cases.
  • Multi-Mesh from one control plane to lower Ops complexity.
  • Scalable horizontally in standalone or multi-zone mode.
