Learn how active and passive health checks work in NGINX Open Source and NGINX Plus, and which use cases each type is best for.
With Deep Service Insight, load balancers outside a Kubernetes cluster get the health status information they need to direct traffic optimally to service pods.
NGINX Plus R27 introduces keepalive connections for health checks, support for Kernel TLS, more TLS metrics, custom error codes for JWT validation failures, and more.
To load balance applications in Microsoft Azure, you can choose NGINX Plus, Azure Load Balancer, or Azure Application Gateway. Explore their different sets of supported features, and learn how combining NGINX Plus with the Azure offerings gives you the best of both worlds.
