After a full year of development since our last major open source release, we are proud to announce the next chapter of our flagship open-source API gateway — Kong Gateway 2.0 is generally available! With this release, Kong will become more operationally agnostic for large-scale deployments across on-premises and multi-cloud environments, thanks to the new Hybrid Mode. In addition, plugin development also becomes more language agnostic, thanks to the new Golang PDK support.

As some of you already know, I have been following the shift towards microservices adoption for a while now. For the longest time, when the industry thought of the transition to microservices, they thought of smaller companies leading the charge. However, I’ve seen large enterprises get value from microservices as well and saw this trickle-in starting in 2016, which is why I am excited to learn this now has achieved mainstream adoption.

Welcome to another hands-on Kuma guide! In the first guide, I walked you through securing an application using Kuma in a Kubernetes deployment. Since Kuma is platform-agnostic, I wanted to write a follow-up blog post on how to secure your application if you are not running in Kubernetes. This capability to run anywhere differentiates Kuma from many other service mesh solutions in the market.
