Pandora is a lightweight isolation container, namely taobao-hsf.sar.This container is used to isolate dependencies between applications and middleware products and between middleware products.EDAS Pandora integrates plugins that implement service discovery, configuration pushing, service call tracing, and other middleware products.By using these plugins, you can monitor, process, trace, analyze, maintain, and manage EDAS applications.
