Enterprise Distributed Application Service (EDAS) - Supports Cross-cluster Application Management, ALB Ingresses, Graceful Start of Applications, and Application Import and Export, and Integrates with MSE Nacos
Target customers: all users. Features released: (1) Cross-cluster application management: This feature allows you to manage applications throughout the lifecycle. These applications are deployed across multiple Container Service for Kubernetes (ACK) clusters in EDAS. When you use an application template to deploy applications across clusters, you can use custom configurations for the application in a specific cluster based on the configurations defined in the template. This way, you can enjoy a flexible configuration mode. In addition, you can release applications in single-phase or multi-phase mode and query change logs after applications are released. (2) Support for Application Load Balancer (ALB) Ingresses: EDAS allows you to configure ALB Ingresses, which are based on Alibaba Cloud ALB instances, for your applications. ALB Ingresses provide improved traffic routing capabilities, such as complex routing and automatic certificate discovery. ALB Ingresses also support auto scaling and are fully managed by Alibaba Cloud. (3) Graceful start of applications: When you release or deploy an application, you can implement graceful start without traffic loss by using methods such as delayed service registration and service prefetching. (4) Application import and export: EDAS allows you to import, export, and clone one or more applications at a time across different EDAS environments or Alibaba Cloud accounts. (5) MSE Nacos instances as registries: EDAS integrates with MSE. When you create a microservices namespace, you can associate an MSE Nacos instance with the microservices namespace. Then, you can register the applications that you release in this microservices namespace with the MSE Nacos instance. An MSE Nacos instance can serve as a registry and provides higher performance and stability than the shared registry of EDAS.
