- Envoy is an L7 proxy and communication bus designed for large modern service oriented architectures.
- Envoy is an open source edge and service proxy, designed for cloud-native applications.
- The network should be transparent to applications. When network and application problems do occur it should be easy to determine the source of the problem.
- All of the Envoys form a transparent communication mesh in which each application sends and receives messages to and from localhost and is unaware of the network topology.
