Many engineers are confused about how a cloud-native API gateway relates to Kubernetes Ingress or a Service load balancer. This talk will unravel this confusion.

An API gateway is at the core of how APIs are managed, secured and presented within any web-based system. Although the technology has been in use for many years, it has not always kept pace with recent developments within the cloud-native space.

Join the expert to experts Daniel Bryant in uncovering the evolution of API gateways over the past ten years and how the original problems they were solving have shifted in relation to cloud-native technologies and workflow.

Current challenges of using an API gateway within Kubernetes: scaling the developer workflow, and supporting multiple architecture styles and protocols

In this talk, you'll learn:

  • How the evolution of API gateways looks
  • Strategies for exposing Kubernetes services and APIs at the edge of your system
  • A brief guide to the (potential) future of cloud-native API gateways
