We show step-by-step how to use API Connectivity Manager to deploy NGINX Plus API gateways for high availability of services in multiple cloud environments.
An API developer portal streamlines API discovery and onboarding of developers. API Connectivity Manager from NGINX makes it easy to set up a portal and avoid API sprawl.
The NGINX Controller App Security add-on for Controller API Management provides an app-centric, self-service way for app teams to boost their API security with integrated WAF protection. Security teams can still define policies and monitor APIs for compliance.
As use of DevOps practices grows, traditional API management solutions are failing to provide the tools for creating modern digital experiences powered by APIs. NGINX Controller is built for DevOps, with a decoupled design that decreases latency, multi-cloud support, self-service, and more.
Guest blogger Jason Benedicic describes several use cases from his daily life where real-time API performance is key to a satisfactory interaction with the app: his favorite dinner-delivery service, his home office with automated controls for lighting and connectivity, and his online-only bank.
We explain why traditional API management frameworks don't work in modern, microservices-based app environments. The NGINX API management solution embodies features our customers tell us they need now: decoupled data and control planes, multi-cloud support, and self-service.
As a network engineer, there are everyday hurdles you face, from outages to design to performance problems. Now you must learn API, too? How do you start understanding the new world? Guest blogger and network engineer Brian Gleason provides guidance on how go about it.
Internal APIs are the real powerhouse of the API economy. We review some of their key benefits (efficiency and cost savings among them) and outline best practices, which include using an API management solution and high-performance API gateways, and decoupling the control and data planes.
Three NGINX customers replaced a legacy API management solution with NGINX Controller. We highlight the challenge faced by each customer and how Controller solves it, while delivering self-service, super-low latencies, and integration of API management into CI/CD pipelines.
