Launch Kong on Google Cloud with Bitnami


Mashape is proud to announce an integration partnership with Bitnami, the leader in ready-to-run application packages and dev stacks for native, virtual and cloud deployments. Mashape’s Kong platform is the most popular open source API gateway and microservice management layer. Built on NGINX with Cassandra or Postgres as DBs, Kong is designed for high availability and distributed systems. Now with Bitnami’s Launcher you can quickly test and deploy Kong on Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Google’s cloud-based hosting, storage and related services offering.

Bitnami has partnered with Google to make Kong available on the GCP. With Kong’s increasing popularity and community demand for Google Cloud it was a natural choice for Mashape to work with Bitnami. By providing pre-packaged application images for Google cloud servers, Bitnami enables devs to create and provision a new cloud server immediately. Bitnami saves users countless hours of configuring and setting up servers.

With the Bitnami Launchpad you can have a fully configured application or development stack up and running on Google’s cloud platform in minutes.


Works out-of-the-box
Bitnami’s application package provides a consistent, secure and optimized end-user experience. With one click you can compile and configure the GCP application and its dependencies, including third-party libraries, language runtimes, and databases.

Here’s a link to Bitnami’s documentation for Kong; where you’ll learn about the Bitnami Kong Stack, configuration file, creating a backup of Kong, uploading files to a server with SFTP, creating a Kong cluster, debugging errors, production environments, and how to access Kong’s Admin API.
