  • How Kubernetes Affects Microservice Architectures Recorded: Jan 31 2019 58 mins
    Cooper Marcus, Director of Ecosystems, Kong; Aaron Miller, Senior Solutions Engineer, Kong
    Aaron Miller, Senior Solutions Engineer at Kong, and Cooper Marcus, Director of Ecosystem at Kong, share their insights into the Kubernetes ecosystem and discuss how this open source project is modernizing the microservices architecture.

    Kubernetes: The Future of Infrastructure
    Container orchestration allows developers to better track, schedule and operationalize various containers at scale. If you want to run multiple containers across multiple servers and virtual machines — which you’ll need to do if you’re using microservices — this would require substantial DevOps resources to make a reality.

    As recent survey data from The New Stack suggests that container adoption is the most significant catalyst of orchestration adoption. In fact, 60 percent of respondents who’ve deployed containers broadly in production report that they are also relying on Kubernetes widely in production to assist with orchestration.

    Containers are quickly enveloping the world of software development. And the momentum behind Kubernetes as the future of infrastructure is not slowing down any time soon.
  • Serverless at Expedia: Learnings from Real Life Use Cases Recorded: Jan 24 2019 57 mins
    Bhardi Govindarajan, Principal Application Engineer., Expedia; Aaron Miller, Senior Solutions Engineer, Kong
    When it comes to serverless, there’s a lot of justifiable excitement, but not a lot to see in terms of use cases. So when does serverless actually makes sense?

    In this presentation Bhadri Govindarajan, Principal Application Engineer at Expedia, and Aaron Miller, Senior Solutions Engineer at Kong, go over some of the serverless use cases currently in production and in planning at Expedia.

    This presentation explores real-life use cases that bridge the gap between serverless excitement and serverless reality.

    Serverless could become the dominant application development model, lowering operations burden, increasing feature release velocity, and allowing developers to focus on delivering business value rather than worrying about deployment concerns and traffic planning. If fully adopted, serverless could have a massive impact in the infrastructure and the business models of the travel and retail industries as there will no longer be a need to forecast, plan, and provision for spikey workloads or unpredictable compute capacity.

    This presentation also includes an overview of Kong’s implementation at Expedia.
  • Microservices: The Journey and 3 Challenges You Will Uncover Along the Way Recorded: Dec 18 2018 45 mins
    Marcelo da Cruz Pinto, Principal Engineer, McAfee; Paul Dickens, Product Manager, Kong
    Almost four years ago, McAfee embarked in the transition towards microservices. They needed an API platform that could integrate with a very complex infrastructure built using multiple languages and methodologies. Additionally, they required this solution to be able to scale or contract with services, and the team to be able to integrate and build custom capabilities on top of it.

    Kong is now a critical element of McAfee’s infrastructure, enabling its microservices journey and supporting it as it becomes the largest cyber security solutions provider across the globe.

    During its journey, the team at McAfee identified three challenges that are common to microservices architectures. Marcelo da Cruz Pinto, Principal Engineer at McAfee, shares the strategies he implemented to manage and minimize these challenges.

    Join Marcelo, and Paul Dickens, Principal Product Manager at Kong while they discuss McAfee’s journey and strategies to manage the challenges that arise with microservices architectures.

  • Demystifying Service Mesh: New Pattern or New Technology? Recorded: Dec 7 2018 64 mins
    Marco Palladino, CTO & Co-Founder, Kong
    In a short period of time, service APIs went from being primarily an edge interface connecting developers outside of the organization with internal systems to the glue that binds those internal systems (microservices) into a functioning whole. Consequently, one of the unavoidable results of microservice-oriented architectures is that internal communication within the data center will increase. Service mesh arose as a potential solution to the challenges that arise from increased East-West traffic by providing a different framework for deploying existing technology.

    However, most of what service mesh introduces has been provided for many years by API Management products. Features such as observability, network error handling, health-checks, etc. are hallmarks of API management. These features don’t constitute anything novel in themselves, but as a pattern, service mesh introduces a new way of deploying those features within our architecture.

    Join Kong CTO and Co-Founder Marco Palladino as he walks attendees through the architectural changes that have led to the rise of service mesh and why legacy API management solutions born before the advent of containers can’t keep up.

    Webinar takeaways:

    - Service mesh as an architecture pattern, not a technology
    - The implications of adopting microservices-oriented architectures
    - Why traditional API management solutions can’t keep up
