Below is my understanding about Kong for Kubernetes enterprise implementation in different modes. Please comment if it needs correction
1. Kong for Kubernetes Enterprise (DB less): Can be implemented only in Classic Embedded Mode. Distributed and Hybrid are not possible. It comes with Kong Ingress controller
2. Kong for Kubernetes Enterprise (DB backed): Can be implemented in classic embedded, distributed and Hybrid mode. It comes with/without Kong Ingress Controller
Steps mentioned in the below link are applicable only to setup Control Plane Installing Kong Gateway (Enterprise) on Kubernetes - v2.6.x | Kong Docs
Same steps (excluding Kong Manager and Dev Portal steps) need to be executed to setup Data plane node(s)
Also, as per Prerequisites, K8s cluster should be in place before we start deployment of kong on k8s. Assume I am setting up a hybrid environment where there are 2 CP and 3 DPs.
Does this mean that I have to create k8s cluster with 2 master nodes and 3 worker nodes ? here 2 CPs will be installed on 2 master nodes and 3 DPs will be installed on 3 Worker nodes. Is this correct understanding ?
