Kong is a proud partner of VMware and its VMware Solutions Exchange Marketplace (VSX), a valuable source of trusted solutions customers use to build, integrate or interoperate with VMware’s portfolio of products.


Adopting Kubernetes requires an enterprise-grade solution to enable management, security and traffic monitoring entering Kubernetes clusters. Running the Kong for Kubernetes ingress controller inside VMware’s Tanzu Kubernetes Grid and taking advantage of other Tanzu components and capabilities, such as Tanzu Observability and Application Catalog, provide a powerful platform for your critical microservice applications.


Manage your ingress through kubectl and CRDs, backed by an application that automatically reconciles the state of your ingress. Enable GitOps via declarative config to boost efficiency and ensure consistency.

Leverage the Kubernetes namespace-based RBAC model to ensure consistent access controls without adding overhead. Easily implement policies across all your clusters via plugins

Instantly integrate with CNCF projects such as Prometheus and Jaeger. Unify control and configuration of all your cloud native tools declaratively or via the same kubectl or CRDs.
