  5. AI mesh anomaly detection for insight into everything from cloud-native to brownfield.

The scale and speed at which decentralized systems operate make a management plane for your cloud-native initiatives a…


Introduction

Service-based architectures and decentralized cloud-native computing deliver on the promise of rapid software release, risk reduction, and business flexibility. They also generate exponential growth in network communications and signal volume. These signals contain a wealth of operational and business intelligence if successfully captured and analyzed. However, doing so in a timely fashion requires vast resource expenditure and advanced technology. Grey Matter’s AI employs this data to provide human operators indicators, recommendations, and actionable outcomes with respect to your enterprise’s cloud-native mesh networks.

Current Solutions Miss the Mark

Today’s conventional analysis solutions require significant human intervention, lack insight, and deliver little actual value. More often than…

Introduction

Grey Matter is a secure, cloud-native core platform that provides massive/critical machine communication services with expanded service capabilities, scalability, agility, and more. Grey Matter features include routing control, resiliency, and observability. These factors enable elastic growth, unprecedented interoperability, and the rapid introduction of new services and capabilities while reducing cost and complexity. Designed based on basic cloud-native principles and open source technologies, the platform addresses the many challenges introduced by a Service-Based Architecture (SBA). Grey Matter is not only helpful, it is necessary.

Why are Decentralized Networks Unique?

Applications, services, and cloud software delivery have changed how networks are designed, adapting, and managing components that…


We recently brought Grey Matter, the universal mesh networking platform, to EnvoyCon, a practitioner-driven community virtual conference emphasizing end-user case studies and technical talks from vendors building offerings atop of the open-source Envoy proxy technology.

A Quick Comment on Conference Mechanics

The conference was well organized and the turn-out was solid — both clear testaments to the value of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) and Envoy within the open-source community.

As Diamond-level sponsors, we had the opportunity to both present and staff a virtual booth. HopIn, the virtual conference platform provided flexibility for booth presentations, running the gamut from static slides to always-on live streaming…


Security gets you in the room, but analytics keep you there.

Grey Matter CEO Chris Holmes recently sat down with Josh Stephens, CTO, Elsewhere Partners for a very interesting and enlightening episode of Josh’s capital GEEK podcast. The pair covered a number of topics including the forces behind the creation of the company, what it takes to secure data networking in today’s cloud environment, the importance of service mesh-derived analytics and his vision for the future Grey Matter universal mesh platform and its role in the continuing evolution of hybrid mesh network infrastructure.

capitalGEEK discusses the lessons learned from seasoned industry product and engineering, operations and finance, and sales and marketing professionals.

We’ve provided a lightly edited version of the transcript of the podcast below. …


Saving Time and Money with the Grey Matter Universal Service Mesh Platform

The service mesh is a hot topic in enterprise tech. IT teams spanning every industry are investigating it as a way to enhance enterprise microservice and cloud-native operations and deliver value to their customers.

One of the first decisions IT leaders must make along the journey toward service mesh adoption is the age-old question of whether to “build or buy.” There are generally three different ways your company can approach this or any IT project:

  • Build from scratch,
  • DIY it using open source capabilities, or
  • Buy one off…

Yuval Dror’s July 28 blog postThe Importance of Anomaly Detection for Service Mesh Monitoring” presents an excellent example of the needs, challenges, and potential of service mesh technology. In the article, Yuval calls out the importance of anomaly detection to service mesh operations at scale. We at Grey Matter completely agree. So, with Yuval’s article in mind, we decided to take this opportunity to unveil some of the log anomaly detection capabilities we’re building into Grey Matter.

Grey Matter’s log anomaly detector is a platform-agnostic log monitoring artificial intelligence for the Grey Matter service mesh. Part of what we…


Today’s enterprises use an incredibly wide range of technology to generate competitive advantage. But what do business leaders really need to understand about their technology? What insight and values should they come to expect from their tech investment? And what role does the service mesh play in connecting it all together?

Grey Matter CEO Chris Holmes tackled this topic in a recent Forbes article entitled The System Information You Need To Make Better Business Decisions — And How To Get It. …
