Kong Achieves AWS Lambda Ready Designation

SAN FRANCISCO May 4,2020Kong Inc., a leading cloud connectivity company, announced today that it has achieved the AWS Lambda Ready designation, part of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Service Ready Program. This designation recognizes that Kong Enterprise has demonstrated successful integration with AWS Lambda.

Achieving the AWS Lambda Ready designation differentiates Kong as an AWS Partner Network (APN) member with a product integrating with AWS Lambda and is generally available and fully supported for AWS customers. AWS Service Ready Partners have demonstrated success building products integrated with AWS services, helping AWS customers evaluate and use their technology productively, at scale and varying levels of complexity.

"Kong is proud to have achieved AWS Lambda Ready designation, said Reza Shafii, VP of Product at Kong Inc. Last month, we announced Amazon Linux 2 Ready designation. Now, AWS users will be able to complement this support by leveraging the AWS Lambda integration available within Kong Gateway and Kong Enterprise with the benefits brought forth by the new AWS Lambda Ready designation.

To support the seamless integration and deployment of these solutions, AWS established the AWS Service Ready Program to help customers identify products integrated with AWS services and spend less time evaluating new tools, and more time scaling their use of products that are integrated with AWS Services.
