Here you will find an overview of VMware Spring Cloud® Gateway for Kubernetes v2.2.

Key features

Spring Cloud Gateway for Kubernetes includes the following key features:

  • Polyglot supported routability for application services, written in any language, that need to expose HTTP endpoints on Gateway instances
  • Kubernetes Operator for handling API gateway custom resources applied to the cluster, providing a Kubernetes "native" experience
  • Commercial container images to manage, create, and dynamically update API routes on instances
  • Dynamic application route configuration, activating API route updates for continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD) pipelines
  • Gateway-defined Single Sign-On (SSO) configuration combined with commercial SSO route filters
  • Simplified OpenID Connect (OIDC) Single Sign-On (SSO) configuration for each API gateway instance
  • Support for encrypted communication using TLS, configurable separately for client ingress and upstream application request routing
  • Configurable API route response cache that can be integrated with distributed cache components such as Redis
  • Commercial API route filters for SSO authentication, role-based access control, scopes authorization, authorized token relay, client certificate authorization, rate limiting, circuit breaker, GraphQL, and much more
  • Monitoring of API gateway metrics for error rates, performance, SSO, rate limiting, circuit breaker status, and more can be captured using Prometheus or Tanzu Observability for Wavefront
  • Propagation of API gateway request traces can be configured to emit to tracing observability options such as Tanzu Observability for Wavefront or other products for which Zipkin is activated
  • HTTP/2 and gRPC API support, including support for JSON request to gRPC call translation
  • High availability configuration and resource control for setting pod count, memory, and vCPU limits for API gateway instances
  • Access to configure JVM options for specific use cases such as JVM performance optimization
  • Local development and testing support, allowing for validation of API route configurations before promoting to environments on the way to production
