Here is an introduction to Spring Cloud Gateway for VMware Tanzu, including key features and specialized information depending on whether you are an operator and app developer.

About Spring Cloud Gateway for VMware Tanzu

The open-source Spring Cloud Gateway project is an API gateway built on Spring ecosystem projects, including Spring 5, Spring Boot 2, and Project Reactor. It provides an effective solution for routing diverse client requests to APIs and addresses cross-cutting concerns such as security, monitoring and metrics, and resiliency. For more information about the open-source project, see the documentation.

Spring Cloud Gateway for VMware Tanzu automates the deployment of an API gateway service by adding it to the Marketplace, so that developers can use Apps Manager or the Cloud Foundry Command Line Interface (cf CLI) tool to deploy their own API gateway based on Spring Cloud Gateway. Binding an app to this new Gateway service instance will provide service instance information to the app's environment.

Key features

Spring Cloud Gateway for VMware Tanzu includes the following key features:

  • Addition of a Spring Cloud Gateway app to the Marketplace as a managed service
  • Integration of Spring Cloud Gateway service with the VMware Tanzu Application Service container network security model, including Mutual TLS support
  • Dynamic application route configuration to allow continuous integration and delivery pipeline API route updates
  • Simplified Single Sign-On (SSO) support via Single Sign-On for VMware Tanzu plans and commercial SSO route filters
  • Host, domain or manual base URLs configuration to define external Gateway URL
  • High availability configuration to set number of Gateway instances
