In this blog, we compare three simple, unambiguous performance metrics: HTTP requests per second (RPS), SSL/TLS transactions per second (TPS), and HTTP throughput (Gbps). The bottom line: the NGINX Plus price-performance advantage continues, with cost savings for NGINX over F5 ranging from 78% to 87%.
When Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux) is enabled for Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) and related distros, its default settings prevent NGINX and NGINX Plus from performing some operations. This article explains how to modify SELinux settings to permit full functionality.
Application development & delivery are continuing to change rapidly as agile principles are applied more thoroughly and to all parts of the overall process. Chris Stetson identifies three principles that guide modern application development: keep it small; design for the developer; and make it networked.
