From Native Microservices to Full API Gateway Adoption in a Hybrid Mesh Ecosystem in the Cloud
ManoMano is a french DIY marketplace that faces scalability issues due to its hyper-growth — 100% growth in 2020 to €1.2 billion. To tackle this challenge, their website has slowly transformed from a “classic” backend application serving html to a microservices-based architecture.
In this talk from Destination: Scale, Isaac Dominguez - Site Reliability Engineer, Aurélien LAJOIE - Head of Architecture, Core and Platform and Bastien Lacombe - Software Developer at ManoMano show how Kong, first used as a classic gateway component, has progressively become a key element in our infrastructure and helped us deploy a hybrid mesh ecosystem in the cloud.
They also discuss the importance of a DDD approach to drive API vision instead of a simple microservice migration. And how they quickly adopted Kong across all their teams by providing the vision, tooling and autonomy to each developer and SRE. Plus where they are today with a hybrid mesh ecosystem in the cloud and how Kong helps sustain their growth and cloud adoption.
