MesosCon 2017 was an amazing event! Thanks to everyone that dropped by our booth. It was great to share Kong with you. During the event, Marco Palladino, Kong’s CTO, presented “API Gateway Pattern & Kong in a Microservices World.” In a container world, APIs are becoming increasingly more important as a communication medium, inside and outside the firewall. As more services are created the harder it gets to efficiently secure, manage, and extend them in a variety of environments. This applies to both single or multi-DC setups. API gateways can be used to centralize common functionality in one place by…

Kong now offers Mesosphere DC/OS. This integration enables developers to deploy Kong on a Mesosphere DC/OS cluster to simplify operations and achieve higher resource utilization. Apache Mesos is the open-source distributed systems kernel at the heart of DC/OS. By abstracting the entire datacenter into a single pool of computing resources it simplifies running distributed systems at scale. Mesosphere can support different types of distributed workloads and container orchestration, like Mesos and Docker containers, and stateful big-data technologies, such as Cassandra, one of Kong’s optimized DB options. Kong is designed to sit in front of highly performant APIs and microservices…
