Alibaba Cloud Service Mesh (ASM) is a fully managed service mesh platform. ASM is compatible with the open source Istio service mesh and allows you to manage services in a simplified manner. For example, you can use ASM to route and split inter-service traffic, secure inter-service communication with authentication, and observe the behavior of services in meshes. This reduces development and O&M workloads.
