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.
A veteran of both companies, NGINX CEO Gus Robertson reflects on IBM’s proposed acquisition of Red Hat. The deal is key to boosting IBM’s relevance in a multi-cloud landscape, but that will happen only if Big Blue preserves Red Hat’s open source culture and community.
NGINX Plus enables high availability for Microsoft Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS), which enables you to extend single sign‑on access to employees of trusted business partners. It load balances AD FS, and optionally Web Application Proxy (WAP), servers.
On Day 2 of NGINX Conf 2018 we enjoyed fascinating keynotes from our NGINX team, Margaret Dawson of Red Hat, and developer evangelist Steven Cooper, then drilled down to examine NGINX products against the backdrop of the today's rapidly changing technology landscape.
