A different kind of service mesh
Ultra light, ultra simple, ultra powerful. Linkerd adds security, observability, and reliability to Kubernetes, without the complexity. CNCF-hosted and 100% open source.
Instant platform health metrics
Instantly track success rates, latencies, and request volumes for every meshed workload, without changes or config.
Simpler than any other mesh
Minimalist, Kubernetes-native design. No hidden magic, as little YAML and as few CRDs as possible.
Zero-config mutual TLS
Transparently add mutual TLS to any on-cluster TCP communication with no configuration.
Designed by engineers, for engineers
Self-contained control plane, incrementally deployable data plane, and lots and lots of diagnostics and debugging tools.
Drop-in reliability features
Instantly add latency-aware load balancing, request retries, timeouts, and blue-green deploys to keep your applications resilient.
State-of-the-art ultralight Rust dataplane
Incredibly small and blazing fast Linkerd2-proxy micro-proxy written in Rust for security and performance.

Engineers Love Linkerd
I absolutely love @Linkerd - among other things it makes load balancing of grpc service trivial. #Kubernetes— Vito Botta (@vitobotta) June 18, 2022
A year ago I switched from Istio to @Linkerd. Ever since then I never had this "...oh maybe that issue is caused by our service mesh" feeling again.— Kharf (@kharf_) July 22, 2022

In few hours we are able to tap in our production and staging applications logs thanks to @Linkerd, wonderful slack support also available, solved one issue came in while injecting @linkerd, it will help our team to see it before client share with us— Siddique Ahmad (@siddiqueESL) April 12, 2021
