Organizations on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic are experiencing increased website traffic from users who now must access resources remotely. NGINX and F5 are offering free software, documentation, and training to help websites scale easily to meet increased demand, and calling on our open source community members to lend their expertise too.
With NGINX App Protect, you no longer have to choose between security and performance. It combines the proven effectiveness of F5’s advanced WAF technology with the agility and performance of NGINX Plus, to address the security challenges facing modern DevOps environments.
We announce the technology preview of NGINX support for QUIC+HTTP/3 as pre-release software, available for interoperability testing, feedback, and code contributions. HTTP/3 replaces TCP with QUIC, which is designed to support multiplexed connections more reliably.
NGINX Unit 1.18.0 introduces filesystem isolation, the 'target' option to reduce redundancy in PHP app configuration, and URL encoding. It also includes features introduced in NGINX Unit 1.17.0: redirects, and fractional server weights for traffic distribution in upstream groups.
The NGINX Controller API Management Module is a radical departure from traditional APIM solutions. Three key differentiators are an innovative architecture that decouples the control and data planes, suitability for multi-cloud deployment, and fair and predictable pricing.
Complying with the PCI DSS standard for protecting credit card transactions is one of the biggest challenges facing modern applications. NGINX App Protect secures your websites and apps against all PCI DSS vulnerabilities, the OWASP Top 10, and more.
Microservices expert Carlos Ponce describes the benefits of transitioning from monolithic applications to microservices with NGINX and outlines the important decision points: making sure it's the right architecture for you, choosing an implementation, and building the right pipeline.
The overall solution to security can be complicated, but the most important piece of the puzzle is a web application firewall (WAF).
APIs are increasingly critical to many businesses, so choosing the right API gateway pattern for your application delivery infrastructure is key. Here we explore five such patterns: edge gateway, two-tier gateway, microgateway, per-pod gateways, and sidecar gateways.
Learn how to use the NGINX image from the Docker Hub repository and how to create your own NGINX Plus image to easily deploy NGINX in Docker containers.
We announce the latest branches of NGINX Open Source, the stable 1.18 branch and the mainline 1.19 branch. New to the stable branch are dry-run mode for request rate and connection limiting; protection against timing attacks; more support for variable parameters, and more.
We show how easy it is to increase your application’s availability with F5 DNS Load Balancer Cloud Service performing global server load balancing of NGINX Plus instances that are reverse proxying your applications in multiple cloud regions and locations around the world.
We show how to build an application stack with NGINX Unit, enabling automated deployment of production environments with custom‑built language runtime versions, libraries, modules, and extensions. The sample app is WordPress deployed in a Docker container.
