Introducing Tetrate Enterprise Envoy Gateway (TEG) v0.1

Tetrate Enterprise Envoy Gateway (TEG) brings all the amazing features of Envoy to power ingress and traditional reverse load balancer use cases through the open source project Envoy Gateway.

TEG has a ton of advanced capabilities that make it easy to install and get started, to empower application developers in your organization with Envoy's per-request traffic management, to integrate with your existing non-cloud native environments and applications, and to perform common API Gateway functions like authentication and rate limiting. See a full overview of Tetrate Enterprise Envoy Gateway (TEG)'s capabilities here.

TEG is built on top of Envoy Gateway, and uses Envoy as the data plane to serve your applications. TEG extends the typical Envoy Gateway installation with Redis for rate limiting, as well as a filter component for integrating Envoy with your OIDC provider. Redis is only deployed if you opt in at install time — see how to install it in our installation guide. For a full overview of TEG, the components that make it up, how data flows, and what network connectivity and ports are required for it to work, check out the architecture section.

Finally, rather than forcing new APIs on developers, TEG leverages the existing, modern open source APIs for exposing applications: the Kubernetes Gateway APIs. These APIs combine experience learned from many ingress implementations, including Istio, Contour, Emissary, NGINX, and others. They divide the role of provisioning Gateways from the role of Routing traffic, so that the first can be managed by platform owners while the second can be delegated to application teams. Read more about the Gateway API and how to use it in the Gateway API section.

What's New in Tetrate Enterprise Envoy Gateway (TEG) v0.1?

  • Our first release, with an install as easy as:
