Non-Kubernetes workloads (mesh expansion)

Linkerd features mesh expansion, or the ability to add non-Kubernetes workloads to your service mesh by deploying the Linkerd proxy to the remote machine and connecting it back to the Linkerd control plane within the mesh. This allows you to use Linkerd to establish communication to and from the workload that is secure, reliable, and observable, just like communication to and from your Kubernetes workloads.
