Learn about some of the common deployment scenarios for NGINX Plus as a reverse proxy load balancer.
Load-balancing software appliances are derived from hardware ADCs, a legacy that limits their usefulness in modern application environments. A true software load balancer integrates into the broadest range of compute infrastructure and breadth of application types.
Software has replaced hardware in many application delivery stacks, but a set of single-purpose solutions is nearly as complex and hard to manage as hardware. NGINX Plus consolidates API gateway and load balancing functions into a single, lightweight platform.
NGINX earns the prestigious designation of IDC "Innovator" as a cloud-native ADC for the world's busiest websites and applications.
