When it comes to dealing with service to service (East-West) traffic it is common to implement a Service Mesh.
OverviewA Service Mesh is a dedicated infrastructure layer that handles service to service communication.
In addition to your services themselves, a service mesh is comprised of two main parts: the sidecars for each service, and a control plane.
Downsides to a service meshWhile a service mesh may remove large amounts of existing overhead and configuration, it is a new system for your team to learn.
Depending on the feature set of your chosen service mesh, combined with the requirements of your app, you may find that a service mesh can handle it’s own roles along with those of the API gateway.
