In the modern SaaS world, observability is key to running software reliability, managing risks and deriving business value out of the code that you’re shipping. To measure how your service is performing, you record Service Level Indicators (SLIs) or metrics, and alert whenever performance, correctness or availability is affected.

With Kong 1.0 users are now able to control TCP (Transport Control Protocol) traffic. Learn about how we added TCP support, and how you can try it out. TCP traffic powers email, file transfer, ssh, and many other common types of traffic that can’t be handled by a layer 7 proxy. Our expansion to layer 4 will enable you to connect even more of your services using Kong.

Four months ago, we declared that API Management is dead and announced our vision for a service control platform. Today, we’re taking a critical step towards fulfilling that vision with the launch of artificial intelligence and machine learning additions to the Kong Enterprise platform – Kong Brain and Kong Immunity.

Kong is very easy to get up and running: start an instance, configure a service, configure a route pointing to the service, and off it goes routing requests, applying any plugins you enable along the way. But Kong can do a lot more than connecting clients to services via routes.

This ebook explains the role that the service mesh pattern plays in the leap towards de-centralized architectures. A novel re-packaging of the functionalities of traditional API gateways, service mesh represents the next stage in the natural evolution of microservices.
Containers enable microservice architectures by making it easy to develop, package, and run microservices in an efficient, run-anywhere format. The mutually reinforcing trends of microservices and containerization have fueled the adoption of Kubernetes, which in turn drove the proliferation of a cloud-native tooling and the formation of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation.
In this presentation, Chris Richardson describes the essential characteristics of the microservice architecture. You will learn about the benefits and drawbacks of the microservice architecture and when it makes sense to use it. Chris also covers how the microservice architecture is not a silver bullet.
Keeping things small is one of the best things you can do for yourself and your team. Almost everything we've seen in the evolution of software and systems points to one, fundamental truth: small things are more manageable than big things. Small iterations are better iterations. Small methods are better methods. Small teams are better teams.
