In this interview, we sat down with Albert Lombarte, Executive Director of the Lura Project at the Linux Foundation to learn more about the project. Essentially, Lura is an Open Source API Gateway Framework created by KrakenD and contributed to the Linux Foundation. It’s one of the most important projects at the foundation as we live in an API-driven world. “An API Gateway Framework is a tool that is between the clients, the consumers of an API, and the backend services, which actually have the data that the users want to consume,” explains Lombarte. “So an API Gateway is a product that makes possible things like security, where rate-limiting, authorization, load balancing, all of that happens without needing to implement that in the backend part.“
