Kong on Amazon Web Services

Next-Generation Service Control Management on AWS

Overview

Kong on Amazon Web Services supports customers on a journey to modern service architectures–from data center to cloud, bare metal to containers. As a lightweight, low latency API management solution that bridges the gap between legacy and cloud-native, Kong ensures performance even at thousands of transactions per second. 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.

“As we evaluated API platforms, it was critical that the vendor we chose could simultaneously support our existing services in the public cloud with what we are building in Kubernetes. Kong offered us the ability to unify services across clouds, which gave us the flexibility to build new services iteratively and how we wanted without fear of cloud lock-in.”
