We compare NGINX performance in bare-metal and virtualized (hypervisor) environments, finding a small but measurable performance cost for hypervisors. We also find that performance in Kubernetes environments is worse for network-bound but not CPU-bound operations.
The built-in live activity monitoring dashboard tracks NGINX Plus metrics in real time, and can get additional insight from visualizations of performance over time. In this demo and blog we show how to generate time-series graphs of NGINX Plus metrics using Prometheus and Grafana.
Despite the emergence of DevSecOps, security teams still seem to lag behind the pace of DevOps. Platform Ops can be the solution, where security teams provide self‑service, consumable policies to development teams. Find out how the NGINX suite of security products can help.
Preview the seven demos presented by the NGINX team on August 24 at NGINX Sprint 2021, our annual virtual event. We show how NGINX solutions accelerate just about every step in your app development journey, from deploying the first reverse proxy to launching a service mesh.
To load balance applications in Microsoft Azure, you can choose NGINX Plus, Azure Load Balancer, or Azure Application Gateway. Explore their different sets of supported features, and learn how combining NGINX Plus with the Azure offerings gives you the best of both worlds.
An often-overlooked benefit of NGINX Plus is how it makes protecting yourself against security threats quick and easy. We proactively inform NGINX Plus subscribers of security vulnerabilities and patches, provide help during attacks, support JWT and OIDC authentication, and more.
Automation is essential to delivering modern digital experiences. We've created four video demos showing how to automate deployment of NGINX Plus and NGINX App Protect, NGINX Controller, an NGINX Plus data plane using Controller, and GSLB using F5 DNS Cloud Services.
We explore some difficulties in developing cloud-native apps, and explain how NGINX software helps you solve them by reducing tool sprawl, controlling costs with lightweight solutions, and enabling SecOps to provide DevOps with self-service security that integrates into CI/CD pipelines.
