Configure a built-in gateway
The built-in gateway is configured using a combination of
and served by Envoy instances represented by
Dataplanes configured as built-in
gateways. Kong Mesh policies are then used to configure
Kong Mesh gateways are configured with the Envoy best practices for edge proxies.
The process for deploying built-in gateways is different depending on whether
you’re running in Kubernetes or Universal mode.
The Kong Mesh Gateway resource types,
MeshTCPRoute, are synced across zones by the Kong Mesh control plane.
If you have a multi-zone deployment, follow existing Kong Mesh practice and create any Kong Mesh Gateway resources in the global control plane.
Once these resources exist, you can provision serving capacity in the zones where it is needed by deploying built-in gateway
Dataplanes (in Universal zones) or
MeshGatewayInstances (Kubernetes zones).
