Recorded February 17, 2022

View a Complimentary Live Webinar Sponsored by NGINX

Two app modernization trends – APIs and Kubernetes – have reached a critical adoption point where many organizations are now seeking to deliver APIs using Kubernetes. As with the containerization of applications, this strategy requires organizations to figure out how to deliver APIs quickly and safely. Organizations are left with the question “Which tool should I use to deliver API gateway functionality in Kubernetes?”

In this webinar, we help you answer that question by looking at the unique needs of containerized APIs (and their owners), sharing common use cases that can be solved with Kubernetes tools, and discussing what you can do to modernize your APIs for the Kubernetes era. 

Join this webinar to learn:

  • Why Kubernetes-native tools are the best choice for most API gateway use cases in Kubernetes
  • How an Ingress controller can satisfy most API gateway use cases
  • When a service mesh is necessary to accomplish API gateway use cases
  • About the relatively small number of use cases where an API gateway tool is the right option
