Kong for Amazon Web Services

Full-Lifecycle API and Microservices Management
Container-Native | Hybrid-Ready


Organizations are attempting to modernize by embracing decentralized architectures, automating workflows, and adopting CI/CD practices. Kong’s Service Control Platform is designed to optimize today’s application modernization needs through intelligent automation across the full lifecycle of APIs and services.


Kong’s plug-in architecture and open-source core make the platform extensible for any use case. Kong accelerates moving mission-critical services to the AWS cloud by reducing disruption to the business during and after migration. Kong also enables AWS services integration to legacy on-premise systems that are not designed to handle cloud-volume requests. Kong works with AWS EKS, Lambda, ECS, RDS, Aurora, ElastiCache and more.
