Sort of. Here are the differences:
The Grey Matter Proxy is the core Fabric component that works as a full featured l7 reverse proxy.
The Sidecar is a Grey Matter Proxy, but the Proxy can be implemented in other ways as well.
Grey Matter has few restrictions on applications and microservices. If an application is accessible via REST or gRPC, it likely can function in the Grey Matter Mesh. You can find microservice template generators via the Grey Matter SDK which can provide working examples of GO-based microservices that support both REST and gRPC.
The default ulimits are usually enough for Grey Matter, but you should monitor your own environment's needs and find the root of excess resource use before increasing the limits.
Grey Matter stores metrics in Prometheus for long-term aggregation and analysis. This data store remains in the customer's environment: it is neither stored nor used by Decipher outside of the deployed environment.
You can find Grey Matter binaries and tar files in our Nexus repository.
