AWS Modernization with Kong:
Hands-On Live Workshop. Watch onDemand.
What we covered
In this workshop, Anuj Sharma, Solution Architect at AWS, and Claudio Acquaviva, Software Architect at Kong demonstrated why API Gateway is a pattern for modernization and how to use patterns with Kong to:
- Decentralize Applications and Services - Break down monoliths into services or build new applications with distributed architectures to accelerate your journey to microservices, Kubernetes and Service Mesh.
- Secure and Govern APIs and Services - Provide consistent security, governance, and compliance across APIs and services.
- Create a Developer Platform - Provide an internal developer platform built for distributed architectures.
- Offload critical and complex processing out of services and microservices.
Attendees followed the AWS Setup, Kong for Kubernetes Setup, Kong Ingress Creation, Kong Ingress Policies, Kong Ingress Consumption and Monitoring.
*This workshop requires an AWS account where there is IAM user/identity that has proper permissions to set up the necessary AWS components to work through the workshop, as well as introductory knowledge in Kubernetes.
