The NGINX Controller API Management Module is next-generation solution for defining and publishing APIs, managing and securing API traffic, monitoring performance, and analyzing usage. In short, it manages the entire lifecycle of APIs without compromising performance.
What is API management? It covers all the functions you perform on your APIs across their life cycle, including definition and publishing, securing and managing traffic, monitoring and troubleshooting to ensure customer satisfaction, and analyzing traffic to maximize business value.
The most substantial set to date of updates to the NGINX Application Platform further simplify application infrastructures by consolidating application delivery, API management, and service mesh management into a single solution.
The API Management Module introduced in NGINX Controller 2.0 provides control-plane functionality and a simple user interface for managing NGINX Plus as an API gateway. Infrastructure & Operations and DevOps teams can easily define, publish, monitor, and analyze APIs.
NGINX Controller R1, a new management tool for NGINX Plus instances, was released June 26th, 2018. It offers simplified configuration management; monitoring, alerting and troubleshooting; tagging; a configuration analyzer; instance inventory; and multi-cloud support.
NGINX Controller launches today. With an intuitive interface, Controller helps you configure, deploy, and monitor instances, set up alerts, create dashboards, and troubleshoot. With NGINX Controller, you can reduce costs and improve performance, reliability, and availability for NGINX Plus.
