Microservices Essentials: Getting Started with Spring Cloud Gateway

Presented by

Chris Sterling, Pivotal Product Manager, Brian McClain, Pivotal Technical Marketer

About this talk

Folks are eager to adopt microservices in order to scale and iterate code faster. Microservices architectures offer a means to safely decouple parts of an application into smaller, more independent units. But adopting a microservices architecture means increasing the number of services communicating via API calls. This introduces the need for API gateways. API gateways aren’t new, but as cloud-native infrastructure evolves, the requirements for API gateways have changed, too. Today, developers are looking for a gateway that runs close to their application to minimize latency, supports reversions to earlier versions, and operates like any other Spring Boot application. Spring Cloud Gateway deploys independently as a Spring Boot app, integrates with Spring Cloud Service Discovery and Spring Cloud Security, and uses familiar tools for observability and resilience. Join Chris Sterling, Pivotal Product Manager, and Brian McClain, Pivotal Tech Marketer, to learn: ● How to set up a basic route using Spring Cloud Gateway ● How to expose the gateway on the network without exposing the services ● How to use Spring Cloud Security to authenticate users at the gateway ● How Pivotal Spring Cloud Gateway makes it easier to operate, upgrade, dynamically configure with no downtime, and more We look forward to you joining us.
