Hybrid API Gateway Clusters With Kong Konnect and Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service

The synergic combination of Amazon EKS Anywhere and Kong Konnect API Lifecycle Management delivers a powerful platform to run critical applications on any cloud, on-premises infrastructure, protocol, or architecture.

In this paper, we address current challenges with modernizing on-premises systems with Kubernetes. Although AWS public cloud services offer several advantages, customers still need to run workloads on premises for a number of reasons. For these customers, we present a set of solutions powered by Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) and Kong Konnect API Lifecycle Management Platform.

Specifically, we focus on Amazon EKS Anywhere, a solution to run Kubernetes on premises, allowing for both perpetual on-premises container and infrastructure management, as well as a vehicle for migrating to the cloud.
