How can I install Envoy on CentOS 7?. Envoy is an open-source, edge and service proxy that abstracts the networking functionality away from applications. You can deploy Envoy proxies beside your applications as a sidecar or run as an edge proxy. Once all application traffic has been configured to go through Envoy mesh, you can consistently control and observe what’s going on in your network.
Some of the network features handled by Envoy include:
- Service discovery
- Metrics Monitoring
- Access Logging
- Authentication and Authorization
