Web Server Load Balancing with NGINX Plus


Exposing APIs
With Kubernetes


Step 1: Learn from the Experts

Time: 1 hour

We cover how to execute common API gateway use cases in Kubernetes and answer the question “How do I expose APIs in Kubernetes?” You'll learn about:

  • Best practices for deploying API gateways in Kubernetes
  • Authorization and authentication
  • OpenID Connect (OIDC)
  • Rate limiting

Step 2: Dive Deeper

Time: 1-2 hours

There are at least three different tools you can use to accomplish API gateway use cases. This collection covers how to choose the right tool for your use cases and further explores how to manage Kubernetes APIs.
