In this inaugural post in our "Ask NGINX" series, we explain how to convert F5 BIG-IP iRules and Apache rewrite rules to NGINX syntax, use NGINX as an API gateway and NGINX Controller for full API lifecycle management, and implement blue-green deployment with NGINX.
In his session at NGINX Conf 2018, Timo Stark of Audi shares how his team built the Audi Cockpit, a dashboard on which Audi employees access work apps. NGINX Plus serves as API gateway for the dashboard, which uses AWS-hosted microservices in Kubernetes-managed containers.
Some of the loudest buzz in the IT industry during 2018 was around the concept of service mesh. Here we review some of the major developments in the space, including introductions, enhancements, and consolidations for both commercial products and open source projects.
The Load Balancing Module in NGINX Controller 2.0 has a new configuration-centric, policy-based approach for configuration management to complement the existing instance-centric approach; integration with ServiceNow; control over logging; and an offline installation method.
The NGINX Controller API Management Module is next-generation solution for defining and publishing APIs, managing and securing API traffic, monitoring performance, and analyzing usage. In short, it manages the entire lifecycle of APIs without compromising performance.
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.
Learn about some of the common deployment scenarios for NGINX Plus as a reverse proxy load balancer.
Learn what makes NGINX and NGINX Plus more than just a web server or just an application delivery controller (ADC)
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.
