Abstract: Good APIs are the center piece of any successful digital product and cloud native application architecture. But for complex systems with many API consumers the proper management of these APIs is of utmost importance. The API gateway pattern is well established to handle and enforce concerns like routing, versioning, rate limiting, access control, diagnosability or service catalogs in a microservice architecture. So this session will have a closer look at the cloud native API gateway ecosystem: Ambassador, Gloo, Kong, Tyc, KrakenD, et.al. But which one of these is the right one to use in your next project? Let's find out. Leander will start off by briefly explaining the API gateway pattern and derive a simple criteria catalog. He will then continue by comparing and showcasing the most promising ones.
