Load-balancing software appliances are derived from hardware ADCs, a legacy that limits their usefulness in modern application environments. A true software load balancer integrates into the broadest range of compute infrastructure and breadth of application types.
Software has replaced hardware in many application delivery stacks, but a set of single-purpose solutions is nearly as complex and hard to manage as hardware. NGINX Plus consolidates API gateway and load balancing functions into a single, lightweight platform.
Gartner analyst David David Cappuccio has identified ten top trends in Infrastructure & Operations for 2018. The enterprise-grade products in the NGINX Application Platform help you keep on top of these trends as you continue your journey to digital transformation.
Agile development has become crucial to development and delivery of new software and new features. But hardware load balancers, with their complex configurations, block progress. A software load balancer - used with, or in place of, hardware - makes the whole delivery chain agile.
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.
