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.
In this companion post to our video "NGINX Unit: Live App Updates at 100% Uptime", we provide all the background and details for each step so you can follow along as we update an application in a multilingual NGINX Unit environment without disruption or downtime.
NGINX Unit 1.3, available now, adds configuration parameters for various timeouts, configurable request body size, Ansible integration, and more. As in previous releases, all parameters can be defined dynamically, with no disruption to running services or loss of connectivity.
NGINX Unit 1.2, available now, adds environment variables across application languages, versions, and sessions; php.ini configuration; and command-line configuration for Go executables. Parameters can still be defined dynamically, with no disruption to running services or loss of connectivity.
Docker and NGINX go together like bananas and peanut butter. NGINX is the #1 download on Docker Hub; the NGINX Kubernetes Ingress controller, NGINX Unit, and NGINX Controller all have strong interest from the Dockersphere. Try our solutions, and come visit us at DockerCon in booth S22.
NGINX Unit supports PHP, which is very widely used for web programming. NGINX Unit therefore supports WordPress, written in PHP, and which is a content management system and application used by more than 30% of the sites on the Web. Use this blog post to install Unit and NGINX together with WordPress.
NGINX Unit 1.0, a multi-language applications server, launched today. Unit supports Python, PHP, Perl, Ruby, and Go, with more languages to come. Unit is dynamically configured using a REST API; there are no process reloads or service interruptions required for configuration changes to take effect.
Many companies want to move to microservices, but are held back by unnecessary complexity. In this blog we discuss our vision for reducing complexity and building microservices with the NGINX Application Platform.
You can now download the Unit beta, version 0.6, with advanced process management, Perl support, an official Docker container, and more.
