How long does it take to configure your cloud-native application on an open-source API Gateway? Getting started with Envoy Proxy can be fast and easy.

Give us 15 minutes and we’ll give you a Kubernetes-hosted application accessible via an open-source gateway, and configured with policies for routing, service discovery, timeouts, debugging, access logging, and observability. The Gloo Edge API gateway builds on the foundation of Envoy Proxy, the open-source proxy in Istio, itself one of the most influential enterprise cloud projects available today.

Best of all, we’ll accomplish all of this in a hosted environment, so you won’t need to install anything on your workstation or Kubernetes clusters.

Would you like to try getting started with Envoy Proxy in a more traditional Kubernetes environment? Not a problem. Check out one of these alternative approaches:

  • Local KinD Cluster
  • Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS)
  • Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE)
  • Red Hat OpenShift

Head over to the Getting Started in 15 Minutes Experience to start your journey now! Note that this is hosted on the Instruqt platform. You can use your Google, Github, or Twitter accounts to login to Instruqt, or you can create a dedicated account if you wish. Note that once you start the Instruqt track, you have a total of 60 minutes to complete it.

If you have questions or would like to provide feedback on the 15-minute interactive experience, please reach out on the Solo #edge-quickstart Slack channel.
