    About this Webinar

    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 Principal Field Engineer Scott Lowe and Kong Director of Product Marketing, Mike Bilodeau illustrate the differences between API gateways and service mesh — and when to use one or the other in a pragmatic and objective way.
