From Native Microservices to Full API Gateway Adoption in a Hybrid Mesh Ecosystem in the Cloud
ManoMano is a french DIY marketplace that faces scalability issues due to its hyper-growth — 100% growth in 2020 to €1.2 billion. To tackle this challenge, our website has slowly transformed from a “classic” backend application serving html to a microservices-based architecture. In this talk, we’ll show how Kong, first used as a classic gateway component, has progressively become a key element in our infrastructure and helped us deploy a hybrid mesh ecosystem in the cloud. We will discuss: – Our high-level vision, focusing on the importance of a DDD approach to drive API vision instead of a simple microservice migration – How we quickly adopted Kong across all our teams by providing the vision, tooling and autonomy to each developer and SRE – Where we are today with a hybrid mesh ecosystem in the cloud and how Kong helps sustain our growth and our cloud adoption.
