Concepts

Logical

  • Components - Meshery Components identify and characterize infrastructure under management.
  • Connections - Meshery Connections are managed and unmanaged resources that either through discovery or manual entry are managed by a state machine and used within one or more Environments.
  • Credentials - Meshery uses one or more Credentials when authenticating to a managed or unmanaged Connection.
  • Designs - Meshery Designs are descriptive, declarative characterizations of how your Kubernetes infrastructure should be configured.
  • Environments - Environments are how you organize your deployment targets (whether on-premises servers or cloud services) into resource groups.
  • Models - Meshery uses a set of resource models to define concrete boundaries to ensure extensible and sustainable management.
  • Patterns - Meshery Patterns are descriptive, declarative characterizations of how your Kubernetes infrastructure should be configured.
  • Policies - Meshery Policies enable you with a broad set of controls and governance of the behavior of systems under Meshery's management.
  • Registry - Meshery Registry is a database acting as the central repository for all capabilities known to Meshery. These capabilities encompass various entities, including models, components, relationships, and policies.
  • Relationships - Meshery Relationships identify and facilitate genealogy between Components.
  • Workspaces - Meshery Workspaces act as central collaboration point for teams.

Architectural

  • Adapters - Adapters extend Meshery's management capabilities in any number of ways, including lifecycle, configuration, performance, governance, identity...
  • Architecture - overview of different individual components of Meshery architecture and how they interact as a system.
  • Broker - Meshery broker component facilitates data streaming between kubernetes cluster components and outside world.
  • Catalog - Browsing and using cloud native patterns
  • Database - Meshery offers support for internal caching with the help of file databases. This has been implemented with several libraries that supports different kinds of data formats.
  • MeshSync - Meshery offers support for Kubernetes cluster and cloud state synchronization with the help of MeshSync.
  • Operator - Meshery Operator controls and manages the lifecycle of components deployed inside a kubernetes cluster
Guides

Using the CLI

πŸ§‘β€πŸ”¬ Hands-on Labs using Meshery Playground

  • Exploring Kubernetes CronJobs - In this tutorial, we will explore how to use Meshery Playground, an interactive live cluster environment, to perform hands-on labs for managing Kubernetes CronJobs.
  • Tutorials - Explore the tutorials to learn how to use Meshery for collaboratively managing infrastructure.
  • Understanding Kubernetes ConfigMaps and Secrets with Meshery - In this tutorial, we will explore how to effectively use Kubernetes ConfigMaps and Secrets for managing configuration data and sensitive information. Leveraging Meshery Playground, an interactive live cluster environment, we'll perform hands-on labs to understand the practical aspects of working with ConfigMaps and Secrets in Kubernetes.
  • Exploring Kubernetes Pods with Meshery - Explore Kubernetes Pods using Meshery in an interactive live cluster environment, through a series of hands-on excercises.

Infrastructure Management

  • Deploying Sample Applications - This guide is to help users get a better understanding of sample apps
  • GitOps with Meshery - Integrating your CI/CD pipelines with Meshery's GitHub Actions
  • Infrastructure Discovery - MeshSync supports both greenfield and brownfield discovery of infrastructure. Greenfield discovery manages infrastructure created and managed entirely by Meshery, while brownfield discovery identifies separately created infrastructure.
  • Infrastructure Management - Meshery provides the ability to manage infrastructure for agility, maintainability, diversity, reliability and isolation, security, and speed.
  • Managing Connections - Manage the lifecycle of your infrastructure by registering each infrastructure element with Meshery.
  • Managing Events with Notification Center - Meshery tracks operations performed on your infrastructure and workloads, and provides notification of environment issues, application conflicts with infrastructure configuration, policy violations, and so on.
