Release 1.6.0 of the NGINX Ingress Controller for Kubernetes includes improvements to NGINX Ingress Resources, support for OpenTracing, and much more.
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.
Trace the traffic in your Kubernetes cluster end-to-end with native support for OpenTracing when using the NGINX and NGINX Plus Ingress Controllers for Kubernetes for load balancing. Our step-by-step instructions show you how to get started, using Docker containers and Jaeger.
In this blog we show how to use NGINX Plus for OpenID Connect (OIDC) authentication of applications behind the Ingress in a Kubernetes environment. We provide instructions for all components: Azure as the identity provider, Kubernetes, Docker, NGINX Plus, and a sample application.
Release 1.5.0 of the NGINX Ingress Controller for Kubernetes introduces a new configuration schema, extended Prometheus-based metrics, simplifications to TLS configuration, support for load balancing traffic to ExternalName services, and a new repository for Helm charts.
This blog describes the performance you can achieve with the NGINX Ingress Controller for Kubernetes, in terms of three metrics: requests per second, SSL/TLS transactions per second, and throughput. The full NGINX and Kubernetes configurations we used are included.
Release 1.4.0 of the NGINX Ingress Controller for Kubernetes includes support for TCP and UDP load balancing and a "power of two choices" load-balancing algorithm (Random with Two Choices), extended Prometheus support, and easy development of custom Annotations.
Our partner Diamanti examines common use cases for load balancing and network services in Kubernetes environments. with NGINX and the Diamanti D10 Bare-Metal Container Platform working together to enhance application delivery, scalability, and high availability.
