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.
Why You Need an API Developer Portal for API Discovery
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.
Fortifying APIs with Advanced Security
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.
Powering API Management for DevOps with NGINX Controller
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.
Why Speed Matters in Modern APIs
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.
What Customers Tell Us They Need for Modern API Management
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.
Network Engineering, APIs, and You
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.
Best Practices for Managing Internal APIs
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.
Real-Time APIs: Stories from the Real World
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.
NGINX: A Radically Different Approach to API Management
The NGINX Controller API Management Module is a radical departure from traditional APIM solutions. Three key differentiators are an innovative architecture that decouples the control and data planes, suitability for multi-cloud deployment, and fair and predictable pricing.
