The adoption of containers has created a fundamental need for container orchestration. Kubernetes has grown to become a top choice for DevOps teams deploying, scaling, and managing containerized applications.

For organizations investing in or considering containers, understanding the landscape for container orchestration is critical, which is what the ebook “Kubernetes: The Future of Infrastructure” addresses.

To compete with large enterprise incumbents, Middle Market and SMB companies need an API platform that enables them to easily build and run next-generation software by providing an enterprise-grade performance with consumer-grade ease of use. Other API gateways and platforms lack the performance, ease-of-use, and automation needed to enable lean teams to build and operate complex, next-generation software.

The Kong Enterprise API platform provides the performance, ease-of-use, and automation Middle Market and SMB companies need to be able to easily build, manage, and scale new services and products in the most cost-effective way possible.
