It is based on Open API format and provides features like service-discovery, fault-tolerance, dynamic routing, notify subscription and scalable by design. It has high performance cache design and separate entity management for micro-services and their instances. It provides out of box support for metrics and tracing. It has a web portal to manage the micro-services.

  • syncer: alpha feature. multiple cluster synchronization tool, designed for large microservice architectures


  • Open API: API doc(Open API format) management for microservice
  • Metadata: Metadata management for both microservice and microservice instance
  • Separated: Separated microservice and microservice instance entity management
  • Domains: Logical multiple domains management
  • Security: Role base access control for service discovery
  • Discovery: Support query instance by criteria
  • Subscribe: Use web socket to notify client about instance change events
  • Portal: Awesome web portal
  • Fault tolerance: Multiple fault tolerance mechanism and design in the architecture
  • Performance: Performance/Caching design
