Don't assume your API Gateway is ready for microservices

Is your API Gateway ready for microservices and Kubernetes?

Principal Engineer at Ambassador Labs

An API Gateway is a common approach used to expose your microservices to your users. Yet microservices require capabilities many API Gateways lack. Does your API Gateway support:

  • New protocols such as HTTP/2 and gRPC?
  • Advanced observability such as distributed tracing?
  • Global rate limiting and circuit breakers for resilience?

In this 30-minute webinar, Flynn, Principal Software Engineer at Datawire, will explain the key capabilities you need in an API Gateway for microservices running on Kubernetes. He’ll also introduce service meshes, a new layer of infrastructure for distributed services.

Flynn will also discuss several of the fast growing open source projects related to API Gateways for microservices running on Kubernetes, including:

  • Envoy, the modern, high performance, edge and service proxy from the engineering team at Lyft.
  • Istio, a service mesh for microservices, built on Envoy from engineers at Google and IBM.
  • Ambassador, an API Gateway built on Envoy and Istio from the team at Datawire.

Join this 30-minute webinar to:

  • Learn about the state-of-the-art in API Gateways
  • Hear what open source technologies are being used today for a service mesh
  • See how you can use these technologies to implement your own service mesh
