Explore the benefits of the Fabric Model of the Microservices Reference Architecture from NGINX, pairing NGINX Plus with a microservice in every container
Explore the benefits of implementing NGINX Plus as a reverse proxy server in the Proxy Model of the Microservices Reference Architecture from NGINX
Explore the Router Mesh Model of the Microservices Reference Architecture from NGINX, with NGINX Plus as reverse proxy and hub for a set of microservices
The NGINX Microservices Reference Architecture incorporates the principles of the Twelve-Factor App, tailored to apply directly to microservices
The NGINX Microservices Reference Architecture includes three models for development – the Proxy Model, the Router Mesh Model, and the Fabric Model.
Microservices is our most popular development topic. See the foundational posts NGINX has published on the subject.
Implementing the circuit breaker pattern in the NGINX Microservices Reference Architecture helps prevent application failure and mitigates its effects.
NGINX Plus and the Proxy Model are part of the launch of OpenShift Primed from Red Hat.
