We've completed the first phase of adding observability to the NGINX Modern Apps Reference Architecture (MARA). Here's how and why we chose OpenTelemetry as our base solution, and how we integrated it and other solutions to implement seven aspects of observability.
Microservices March 2022 is underway! Here are links to all the resources for Unit 1: the livestream taking place on March 7, blogs and other resources that provide more in-depth knowledge, and the self-paced, hands-on lab, “Reduce Kubernetes Latency with Autoscaling”.
More and more organizations, including the U.S. government, are recognizing the need for Zero Trust security. ZT is particularly important for distributed environments like Kubernetes. Follow our seven practical guidelines to implement ZT more easily and effectively.
Our 2021 survey of the NGINX community reveals that two-thirds of you are using Kubernetes in production or planning to deploy within a year. But you're also concerned about your level of knowledge and the complexity, security, and scalability of Kubernetes itself.
Great ready for Microservices March 2022! This year we focus on Kubernetes networking, a key component of production-grade Kubernetes that is often not well understood. Preview what you'll learn during the four-week series and register for access to the labs.
We performance test NGINX Ingress Controller and the default Red Hat OpenShift Router in an OpenShift Cloud Platform cluster while scaling the number of backends up and down. The Router experiences significant latency and errors, but NGINX Ingress Controller almost none.
Do you need an Ingress controller to accept traffic into your Kubernetes environment? To help you decide, we offer a primer on the other services for getting external traffic into a cluster: kube-proxy, Cluster IP, NodePort, and LoadBalancer.
We recently jumped the NGINX Ingress Controller version number from 1.x to 2.x, to signal compatibility with version 1 of the Kubernetes API (released in Kubernetes 1.22). Find out why this matters and how to keep your Kubernetes apps running smoothly as versions change.
