About Bitnami Kong Stack

The Bitnami Kong Stack provides a one-click install solution for Kong. Run your own Kong server in the cloud.

Kong is a scalable, open source API layer (aka API gateway or API middleware) that runs in front of any RESTful API. Extra functionalities beyond the core platform are extended through plugins. Kong is built on top of reliable technologies like NGINX and provides an easy-to-use RESTful API to operate and configure the system.

If you’re building for web, mobile or IoT (Internet of Things) you will likely end up needing common functionality on top of your actual software. Kong can help by acting as a gateway for HTTP requests while providing logging, authentication, rate-limiting, and more through plugins.
