Gateway API: What’s Next After GA

Event Ended
December 7, 2023

With the recent general availability (GA) release of Gateway API, a key building block for Kubernetes ingress is now stable and ready for production use. However, the GA milestone is just the beginning. There are many new capabilities and enhancements planned for Gateway API that will make it even more powerful and flexible.

In this webinar, we will look at what's coming next for Gateway API and how the project plans to evolve.

Topics Will Include

  • Support for additional protocols like gRPC
  • Layer 4 Support with TCPRoute and UDPRoute
  • Broader platform support beyond Kubernetes
  • Improved validation and health checking
  • Advanced traffic management features
  • Better integrations with service meshes
  • Progressive delivery and canary releases

Shane Utt, one of the Gateway API maintainers, will provide his inside perspective on the future roadmap and what users can expect as Gateway API continues to mature. Shane is a Staff Software Engineer at Kong working on all things Kubernetes and networking. He is also a chair for Kubernetes SIG Network, and a maintainer of Gateway API.

If you're using Gateway API already, or interested in adopting it, you won't want to miss what's coming next. The GA release was an important step, but Gateway API still has a lot more to offer as a next-generation ingress for cloud native environments.
