Gate: Deploying

Gate is very flexible in terms of how you can deploy it. Some popular deployments include:

  • as a proxy deployed in front of each of your services
  • as an API Gateway that routes traffic to your services
  • as an external authentication service running alongside an Envoy-based proxy or API Gateway
  • as a sidecar for Kubernetes services

API Gateway

You can find an example deployment Deploying Gate: Kubernetes API Gateway.


Kubernetes is not required to run Gate. With small adjustments, you can replicate this topology on any kind of infrastructure.
