How to reorganize Service Management
Dan Kohn <dan@...>
The service management sub-category of the landscape is, IMHO, one of the most confusing.
It appears to be a grab bag of the following:
Open Service Broker API
Open Policy Agent (OPA)
Reactive Interaction Gateway
I would argue that Load Balancers are ultimately a subset of Service Mesh functionality, so those two categories should be combined. It's also debatable whether API gateways are a subset of Service Meshes.
RPC at least seems different to me, although those 4 might best be moved to the Streaming category: https://landscape.cncf.io/grouping=landscape&landscape=service-management,streaming
If we rename "Secure Images" to "Security and Policy", then Open Policy Agent (OPA) would probably belong there.
This one is a bit of a challenge. A few notes that may help clarify:toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Open Service Broker API isn't an API gateway. I was going to suggest "service discovery", but it doesn't do runtime service discovery or even touch data path. Looking at the other categories it feels like "other" may be the best option. That, or "service catalog" becomes a category.
