Among a raft of announcements Wednesday at AWS Summit in Santa Clara, California, Amazon Web Services announced the general availability of its AWS App Mesh.

AWS App Mesh, which was first previewed at last year's AWS re:invent conference, enables application-level networking in order to make it easier for customers' services to communicate with each other across multiple types of compute infrastructures such as Amazon EC2 and AWS Fargate.

On Amazon Web Services, App Mesh works with AWS Fargate, Amazon EC2, Amazon ECS, Amazon EKS, and Kubernetes in order to better run applications at scale.
