“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.”

VP of Engineering at SoulCycle

Unlock New Use Cases

Eliminate friction in building services that require gRPC, GraphQL, or Kafka. Enable adoption of IoT and other latency-dependent use cases with GraphQL and gRPC. Create an event mesh by exposing Kafka topics as upstreams in Kong, or use Kafka as additional logging backend.

Achieve Comprehensive Governance

Apply advanced Kong policies to GraphQL endpoints and queries. Limit requests by cost to ensure efficient resource use. Create custom policies in Go and LUA using the Kong PDK.
