Microservices March is a month-long virtual festival of microservices activities here at NGINX. Whether you’re already using Kubernetes in production or your interest is just blossoming, you’re sure to find sessions to pique your interest. Check out the schedule on our blog!
We explain how production-grade Kubernetes solves the challenges of deploying containerized microservices-based apps, which include culture, complexity, and security. In addition to a Kubernetes infrastructure you need a scalable Ingress controller, WAF, and service mesh.
NGINX Ingress Controller now supports single sign-on with OpenID Connect. Release 1.10.0 also introduces new configuration queue metrics, annotations on log entries, better validation of annotations and secrets, support for NGINX App Protect user-defined signatures, and more.
Accompanying an infographic of results from our 2020 NGINX user survey, we present key takeaways about the state of app delivery: the rising dominance of microservices and containers, the most popular associated technologies, and the challenges faced by app delivery professionals.
Microservices expert Carlos Ponce describes the benefits of transitioning from monolithic applications to microservices with NGINX and outlines the important decision points: making sure it's the right architecture for you, choosing an implementation, and building the right pipeline.
We examine the state of API gateways as the industry transitions from monolithic to microservices‑based apps, considering the challenges of hugely distributed app environments. We explore the role of API gateways in a service mesh and in hybrid clouds.
Microservices is one technology that is leading the march towards digital transformation in the world of application development. With their high performance and small footprint, NGINX and NGINX Plus are ideal for microservices, both as API gateways and Kubernetes Ingress controllers.
In a Chaos Engineering experiment, you "inject failure" into a microservices application's environment to test the app's resilience. We discuss important concepts like blast radius, magnitude, abort conditions, and blackhole attacks, which cause dependencies to fail.
In his session at NGINX Conf 2018, Timo Stark of Audi shares how his team built the Audi Cockpit, a dashboard on which Audi employees access work apps. NGINX Plus serves as API gateway for the dashboard, which uses AWS-hosted microservices in Kubernetes-managed containers.
