Adevinta Spain Case Study: Success Story

KrakenD as a Zuul replacement

Location: Spain Industry: Marketplace

Adevinta Spain handles a vast amount of traffic, as it operates marketplaces with 18 million active users. The adoption of KrakenD’s technology in production started in early 2017 and has been running since then.

Adevinta was investigating how to get more performance in their company-wide solution, and how to provide autonomy to non backend teams.

After several weeks of research, stress-tests and benchmarking several products in the market, Adevinta decided to choose KrakenD as the api gateway engine.

Adevinta’s team implemented the new service using KrakenD, replacing Netflix’s Zuul solution as KrakenD outperformed the rest of the compared solutions.

After the first year of successful service using KrakenD, and thanks to Adevinta’s commitment with open-source, their engineers released several KrakenD components that help the community to integrate KrakenD with the Netflix stack: a new rate limiter, a new circuit breaker and a Eureka integration (service discovery).
