Solving API Authorization Challenges in Multi-Cloud Environments

As more and more companies move to a multi-cloud strategy and increase usage of a cloud native infrastructure, API providers are under a lot of pressure to deliver APIs at scale in multi-cloud environments.

With the complete separation of the control plane (CP) and data plane (DP), Kong Gateway fully supports hybrid deployments.
