Gloo Gateway is a fast, Kubernetes-native API gateway packed with features IT operations teams need to deliver a full lifecycle security strategy for their cloud-native environments.
Why Gloo Gateway?
Traditional API Gateways aren’t designed to thrive in the rapidly changing cloud-native landscape, often demanding extensive supplementary infrastructure to ensure their resilience, high availability, and readiness for production use.
Gloo Gateway Is...
Make 353 million requests per day on a single CPU. Gloo Gateway is fast and can scale with each CPU handling 4,000 requests per second.
Take control of your service access and prevent data loss with web application firewalls, FIPS compliance, rate limiting, and enterprise identity integrations.
Works with your existing GitOps and progressive delivery pipelines for both infrastructure and applications.
