AWS App Mesh now supports adding retries to traffic between services. With this feature, you can add resilience to your application with essentially no change to application code. This is useful in applications where failed requests can be retried without any negative consequences, shielding users from transient issues 

Using App Mesh, you can configure when to retry, how often and choose defaults for settings that augment retries. You can select the list of HTTP error codes or TCP connection failures to retry your network requests on, specify the max number of retries and set a timeout for each retry. This feature is available in all regions where AWS App Mesh is available. To learn more and get started with this feature, see our Documentation.
