We explain why duplicating application services paradoxically can improve overall efficiency: because NetOps and DevOps teams have different mandates, it makes sense for them to select and manage the tools that best suit their specific needs.
Why DNS Is Critical for Modern Application Deployments
We discuss how you can use a DNS service like F5 DNS Load Balancer Cloud service to implement three methods for seamlessly and safely deploying application updates to production environments: blue-green, rolling blue-green, and canary releases.
NGINX and DevOps Methodologies Go Hand in Hand
Blue-green deployment and canary releases are two DevOps approaches that make application delivery and deployment more agile. In this blog we define the approaches and show how NGINX and NGINX Plus make it easy to implement them.
Introducing “Ask NGINX…”
In this inaugural post in our "Ask NGINX" series, we explain how to convert F5 BIG-IP iRules and Apache rewrite rules to NGINX syntax, use NGINX as an API gateway and NGINX Controller for full API lifecycle management, and implement blue-green deployment with NGINX.
