Modernization & Maximizing Efficiency in AWS With Kong Konnect

Event Ended
April 11, 2023

The management of APIs continues to increase in complexity as the number of APIs explodes. Organizations require an effortless solution to guarantee secure, reliable, and efficient connections of services across all types of environments. In light of the present economic challenges, smart investment in areas with a track record of boosting productivity and efficiency, and doubling down on modernization efforts, is more important than ever.

In this workshop, Anuj Sharma, Solution Architect at AWS, Claudio Acquaviva, Software Architect at Kong, and Smriti Jaggi, Sr. Product Manager at Kong will demonstrate the ways Konnect can help your organization adopt a federated API management model throughout their lifecycle, and show how the API Gateway pattern can be used for modernization with Kong to:

  • Decentralize Applications and Services – Break down monoliths into services or build new applications with distributed architectures to accelerate your journey to microservices, Kubernetes, and service mesh.
  • Secure and Govern APIs and Services – Provide consistent security, governance, and compliance across APIs and services.
  • Create a Developer Platform – Provide an internal developer platform built for distributed architectures.
  • Offload critical and complex processing out of services and microservices.

Attendees will follow the AWS Setup, Kong Konnect, Kong Konnect Service Hub, Kong Konnect Runtime Manager, Kong Plugins, and Monitoring.

*This workshop requires a free trial Kong Konnect Plus subscription and an AWS account where there is IAM user/identity that has proper permissions to set up the necessary AWS components to work through the workshop, as well as introductory knowledge in Kubernetes. The facilitators will provide temporary AWS accounts to the first 100 attendees, to be used for the duration of the workshop, so that attendees can get hands-on.

**Kong Konnect Enterprise is a Service Connectivity platform that provides technology teams at multi-cloud and hybrid organizations the "architectural freedom" to build APIs and services anywhere. Kong's Service Connectivity Platform provides a flexible, technology-agnostic platform that supports any cloud, platform, protocol, and architecture. Kong Konnect Enterprise supports the full lifecycle of service management, enabling users to easily design, test, secure, deploy, monitor, monetize, and version their APIs.
