This blip is not on the current edition of the Radar. If it was on one of the last few editions, it is likely that it is still relevant.

Kuma is a platform-agnostic service mesh for Kubernetes, VMs and bare metal environments. Kuma is implemented as a control plane on top of Envoy and as such can instrument any Layer 4/Layer 7 traffic to secure, observe, route and enhance connectivity between services. Most of the service mesh implementations are targeted natively at the Kubernetes ecosystem which in itself is not bad but hinders the adoption of service mesh for existing non-Kubernetes applications. Rather than waiting for large platform transformation efforts to be complete, you can now use Kuma and modernize the network infrastructure.
