"Kong API Gateway is a fantastic product that supports the process of holistic API management excellently. It’s super lightweight, especially with its plugin-based approach. Their support makes the daily work of API development much easier and saves many lines of code in your applications. In addition, I have found the support to be very competent and helpful. So far we have always received quick and appropriate answers." -Fabian H

"Kong API Gateway brings a lot of value and utility as it is built for hybrid and multi-cloud environments and is optimized and purpose-built for microservices and distributed architectures, providing secure connections to different applications over interfaces. The best part about Kong API Gateway is that it provides plugins to use in Gateway deployments." -Consultant in Computer Networking

"In my opinion, Kong API Gateway is a great choice because of its lightweight nature, also its ease of installation, and ease of use even for beginners. Moreover, it has an intuitive user interface that is sleek and easy to use." -ND, Frontend Developer

"Kong is a great solution for deploying a cloud vendor-agnostic API Gateway. You can deploy it from a container or with the native binary. I am especially fond of leveraging the Kong Ingress Controller in K8s as I find it to be one of the simplest ways to handle both Ingress and Routing with the other Kong features as frosting on the cake." -Greg H, FHIR Architect
