As service mesh technology has emerged, the industry has often failed to recognize how this pattern played with the API gateway pattern.
It’s been commonly communicated that API gateways are for north-south traffic and service meshes are for east-west traffic. This is not accurate, and if anything, it underlines a fundamental misunderstanding of both patterns.
In this webinar, Kong Field CTO Melissa van der Hecht and Kong Senior Solutions Engineer Ned Harris illustrate the differences between API gateways and service mesh — and when to use one or the other in a pragmatic and objective way.
