In his session at NGINX Conf 2019, Felix Colaci of mobilcom-debitel shares how his team replaced Apigee with NGINX Plus as their API gateway. NGINX Plus reduced costs by 60% and improved reliability and performance. It fits perfectly into mobilcom-debitels CI/CD pipeline, enabling software update in minutes.
APIs are playing an increasingly important role in digital transformation at enterprises, in every vertical and region. We review trends in API usage as reported by industry analyst IDC, and explain how NGINX solves the challenges that companies face in deploying and managing APIs.
NGINX Plus R20 builds on the enhancements made in R19 to rate limiting, adding real-time monitoring and logging; connection limiting now has the same features. We also added prefix matching in the key-value store, DNS resolution per upstream group, new PROXY Protocol variables, and improved security for HTTP/2.
DNS over TLS (DoT) and DNS over HTTPS (DoH) are two emerging technologies for securing Domain Name System (DNS) traffic. In this post we take a look at the history of DNS and show how to implement DoT, DoH, and a DNS filter using NGINX Open Source and NGINX Plus.
Many popular mobile apps rely on "real-time" APIs, which can process an API call end-to-end in under 30 milliseconds. Explore many real-world examples --- ride hailing, cashierless stores, credit card fraud detection, and IoT -- and learn why you need NGINX, the only real-time API solution.
PingIdentity provides an NGINX integration with its AI-driven solution for API security, PingIntelligence for APIs. The solution uses API metadata collected by NGINX to determine whether API clients are granted access. PingIntelligence for APIs also provides dashboards, reports, and anomaly detection.
Application isolation in NGINX Unit enables you to control which types of system resources your apps share with NGINX Unit and each other. Running apps in isolated environments improves security. Get all the details on how it works, and what it means for the future of NGINX Unit.
Microservices is one technology that is leading the march towards digital transformation in the world of application development. With their high performance and small footprint, NGINX and NGINX Plus are ideal for microservices, both as API gateways and Kubernetes Ingress controllers.
Trace the traffic in your Kubernetes cluster end-to-end with native support for OpenTracing when using the NGINX and NGINX Plus Ingress Controllers for Kubernetes for load balancing. Our step-by-step instructions show you how to get started, using Docker containers and Jaeger.
We provide guidance on using NGINX to mitigate the recently discovered vulnerability in PHP-FPM (CVE-2019-11043). The vulnerability is triggered when the PATH_INFO variable passed to PHP-FPM with an invalid value, which can happen in a common NGINX configuration.
