Powerful Functionality for Your SoftwareMashape’s Kong platform is a popular open source, scalable API gateway and microservices management layer that helps add common functionality on top of your web, mobile, or IoT application. It acts as a gateway for HTTP requests, while providing logging, authentication, rate-limiting, and a huge variety of additional functionality through plugins. Kong is built on NGINX and Cassandra, and is easily configurable for high availability, fault-tolerance, and clustering right out of the box.
The Bitnami Kong stack is easy to configure in a clustered topology - simply launch the number of instances you need, configure each node with the IP address and authentication settings for the Seed Node, and Kong does the rest! You can read more about clustering Kong with multiple instances in our documentation.
