Getting Started with Kong Mesh
Kong Mesh — built on top of CNCF’s Kuma and Envoy — tries to be as close as possible to the usage of Kuma itself, while providing drop-in binary replacements for both the control plane and data plane executables.
You can download the Kong Mesh binaries from the official installation page, then follow Kuma’s official documentation to start using the product.
Kuma, a donated CNCF project, was originally created by Kong, which is currently maintaining both the project and the documentation.
