Did you know there is more than one NGINX Ingress controller for Kubernetes? You do now. We help you figure out which one makes sense for you, based on their differences around authorship, development philosophy, production readiness, security, and support.
No one uses fax machines anymore, so why is the F5 BIG-IP still part of your "modern" app architecture? Augment or replace it with NGINX Plus for agility and cost savings. Our many resources will guide you on your journey to research, evaluate, and implement NGINX Plus.
NGINX Plus covers all API gateway use cases, from traditional monoliths to distributed microservices. No need for the separate microgateway that first-generation API management vendors have had to bolt onto their solutions to handle modern application architectures.
We look back over the most influential blog posts of 2018 on nginx.com, to remind you of what we’ve worked hard on improving to make your experience of NGINX even better. The year witnessed announcements and updates for many products in the NGINX Application Platform.
When debugging traffic problems between NGINX and upstream servers, CDN77 couldn't get the data they needed except in the error log with debugging enabled, which slows performance and creates huge files. The team wrote a new custom module to log just the data they need.
What is API management? It covers all the functions you perform on your APIs across their life cycle, including definition and publishing, securing and managing traffic, monitoring and troubleshooting to ensure customer satisfaction, and analyzing traffic to maximize business value.
F5 BIG-IP hardware was no longer performing well for digital advertising platform AppNexus. The company switched to NGINX Plus for load balancing and saved 95%. At NGINX Conf 2018, Ernesto Chaves of AppNexus explains how and why his team chose NGINX Plus.
With NGINX Unit, configuring a new application in an existing production environment does not disrupt existing apps or require configuration reloads. Here are all the relevant commands and configuration from Amanda Bockoven's demo at NGINX Conf 2018.
As a dynamic application gateway, NGINX Plus combines several application-delivery tiers – proxying, SSL termination, WAF, caching, API gateway, and load balancing – into a single, dynamic ingress-egress tier for traffic to and from any application and across any cloud.
Release 1.4.0 of the NGINX Ingress Controller for Kubernetes includes support for TCP and UDP load balancing and a "power of two choices" load-balancing algorithm (Random with Two Choices), extended Prometheus support, and easy development of custom Annotations.
The Random with Two Choices load-balancing algorithm is NGINX's implementation of the "power of two choices" method. This biased random algorithm has been shown to be effective at balancing loads when each load balancer has an incomplete or delayed view of the traffic.
Our partner Diamanti examines common use cases for load balancing and network services in Kubernetes environments. with NGINX and the Diamanti D10 Bare-Metal Container Platform working together to enhance application delivery, scalability, and high availability.
