Architects, DevOps, and cloud engineers are gradually trying to understand which is better to continue the journey with: the API gateway, or adopt an entirely new service mesh technology? In this article, we will try to understand the difference between the two capabilities and lay out some reasons for the software team to consider or not consider a service mesh such as Istio (because it is the most widely used service mesh). 

Please note we are heavily driven by the concept of MASA architecture that guarantees infrastructure agility, flexibility, and innovation for software development and delivery teams. (MASA — a mesh architecture of apps, APIs, and services — provides technical application professionals delivering applications with the optimal architecture to meet those needs.)
