"Diverse microservices patterns and technologies, together with the requirements of given microservice applications,provide myriad opportunities for service mesh differentiation and specialization - including meshes native to specific cloud platforms. This will lead to a world where many enterprises use multiple service mesh products, whether separately or together."
