Web Server Load Balancing with NGINX Plus

We’re excited to travel to Austin, Texas next week to participate at the OpenStack Summit, April 25–29. Stop by booth B20 for a live demo of NGINX Plus load balancing virtual machines in an OpenStack environment. We’d love to chat with you about how NGINX Plus can reduce costs and improve app performance and security in your OpenStack cloud.

Ask us how NGINX Plus provides massive performance improvements, reduces costs by up to 83% compared to hardware‑based ADCs, creates a simplified stack, and offers the flexibility you need to innovate. Whether you’re using private or public cloud, or on‑premises deployment types, you can easily deploy and manage NGINX Plus.

If you’re already using the LBaaS API, you will find that NGINX Plus provides even further functionality. This includes features such as:

  • WebSocket support
  • HTTP/2
  • Authentication and security controls
  • Highly customizable application health checks
  • Extended session persistence methods
  • Advanced content caching
  • UDP load balancing, along with HTTP and TCP

We hope to see you at our session in the Marketplace Theater on Wednesday, April 27, at 1:55PM on how to Safely and Reliably Scale Out Your Apps with NGINX Plus. We’ll describe how NGINX Plus offers key performance‑enhancing features such as content caching, HTTP/2, and a wealth of stats to give you critical visibility into how well your OpenStack apps are performing.

See you in Austin!
