AWS App Mesh introduces Agent for Envoy, a new component that monitors Envoy proxies and helps keep them healthy. Agent for Envoy also facilitates Envoy connection draining, helping make your applications more resilient to failures. AWS App Mesh is a service mesh that provides application-level networking to make it easier for your services to communicate with each other across multiple types of compute infrastructure. AWS App Mesh standardizes how your services communicate, giving you end-to-end visibility and options to tune for high-availability of your applications.

The new AWS App Mesh Agent is included in App Mesh-optimized Envoy images starting from version 1.21.0 and requires no additional resource allocation in customer tasks or pods.
