Our Service Mesh discussion leaned heavily into the needs around edge infrastructure because there are so many missing parts for the edge deployment systems,

When we started talking about service meshes, we really realize is that the actual control plane, communications grid and security for edge are not defined enough for us to layer on what has become sort of a standard in cloud deployments of service mesh into that discussion.

How we got there, how we discussed it, and the components of why that’s important, is much more interesting than the conclusion itself.
