Kong 2.0.0 just released recently with a Hybrid Mode Deployment, which introduce the control plane and the data plane.
However, the kong ingress controller with DB also has the control plane and data plane like the diagram shows here:
In kong ingress controller, the control plane writes into the DB. In hybrid mode, the config is pushed to data plane directly. Another main difference is that in hybrid mode, there could be several data planes sharing one control plane. But it feels like more suitable to have one data plane with several control planes from different namespaces in kong ingress controller. It seems to be two different approaches to config and manage the kong now.
May I ask what are the use cases for hybrid mode and kong ingress controller? How should we decide which way to go?
