Effective, Predictable Control Primitives for Instant Resilience

Monitoring systems and detecting failures is worth little without the ability to remediate effectively and in time.

Glasnostic Traffic Control enables operations, SRE and security teams to respond to complex, disruptive behaviors effectively, with powerful and predictable control primitives, in real-time and without the YAML.

Agentless, Infrastructure-Agnostic Traffic Control

Glasnostic Traffic Control is an agentless, non-invasive and infrastructure-agnostic operations solution. A distributed fleet of virtual service routers turns existing networks into an active, application-aware fabric that lets the Glasnostic Traffic Controller detect and remediate disruptive behaviors, in real-time.

The Glasnostic Traffic Controller can be either consumed in the cloud or installed on premises. Service routers deploy as virtual appliances in physical or virtual machine environments, or as a DaemonSet in Kubernetes.

For environments running Istio, Glasnostic provides an Istio-Proxy/Envoy adapter.

Glasnostic for Istio

Works Everywhere

Because Glasnostic inserts cleanly into the network and requires no agents and no modifications to code or deployment artifacts, it works with every stack and in any environment, without affecting developers or processes.

SRE teams need to address performance degradations and gray failures before they become systemic issues that impact availability. With Glasnostic, they can focus on “golden signals” to quickly detect distress in the service landscape and apply operational patterns like backpressure, circuit breaking and quarantining to remediate in real-time. Glasnostic makes it easier to achieve rapid MTTR and improve the resilience of services through the application of chaos engineering patterns.

Remediate Disruptive Behaviors

When services start to combine and interact organically, the result is often a loss of visibility and control. Glasnostic allows operations teams to focus on “golden signals” to quickly detect problems and apply operational patterns like bulkheads, backpressure and circuit breaking on-the-fly to remediate in real-time. This enables operations teams to regain control over their sprawling services, meet SLAs and manage the user experience.

Securing a service landscape requires more than merely encrypting communication. SecOps teams and CISO's know that increased developer productivity means more services, more chatter and more change—and thus more attack vectors. With Glasnostic, security teams can visualize evolving threats with their ephemeral actors, morphing identities and transient interactions by applying powerful segmentation and access control policies, despite the lack of a defensive perimeter.
