Dive deep into two Linux features that underlie containers: namespaces and cgroups. They enable process isolation, ensuring that multiple processes running on a system don't interfere with one another. Our NGINX Unit application server also uses them for application isolation.
Application isolation in NGINX Unit enables you to control which types of system resources your apps share with NGINX Unit and each other. Running apps in isolated environments improves security. Get all the details on how it works, and what it means for the future of NGINX Unit.
NGINX Unit 1.11.0 introduces support for static file serving, a much requested feature ever since NGINX Unit debuted. It also includes application (process) isolation using Linux namespaces and a WebSocket server implementation for Java Servlet Containers. NGINX Unit 1.12.0 adds support for PHP 7.4.
