Use Cases

Automatically collect hundreds
of traces, logs and metrics

Modern microservices architectures cannot be built in the dark, with Kong Mesh our teams can automatically collect metrics and traces on the fly.

    Gain operational insights

    With Kong Mesh we can automatically extract service traffic metrics, traces and logs with 70+ charts and dashboards out of the box.

    Resolve bugs faster

    By automatically collecting observability metrics and traces without any code change required, we know exactly what to fix when things go south.

    Drastically accelerate development times

    With Kong Mesh we can provide observability as a service to every application without asking our teams to build it, on both Kubernetes and VMs.

    With Kong, we knew that we would get something that would work perfectly with our technology today and set us up for where we want to go. Kong allows us to deploy on-premise, easily integrates with all the technologies we use across the company and gives us the flexibility we want to avoid vendor lock-in.

    Since all regional payment systems were previously monoliths exposing APIs separately, the API gateway was a greenfield project for Verifone. "In moving to microservices, we knew we needed an API gateway.

    Hans van Leeuwen , Lead Architect at Verifone

    As these integrations scaled up, the addition of a robust API Gateway solution like Kong to our technology stack was a no-brainer.
