Our Code Connects Us All initiative underlines the positive impact that the software code we create and collaborate on has on our society and our livelihoods. We celebrate how our customers, partners, and open source community use our technology to further humanitarian causes in their local communities.
Lorcan McVeigh describes what it's like to intern as a Software Engineer at the NGINX office in Cork, Ireland. He discusses how NGINX's team approach to software development not only leads to better code but also makes the company a great place to grow your skills.
Zack Belcher explores 5 reasons Vizuri recommends software-based load balancers to its customers instead of specialized, on-premises hardware appliances: they can enhance agility, facilitate modernization, increase flexibility, boost scalability, and lower costs.
We examine the state of API gateways as the industry transitions from monolithic to microservices‑based apps, considering the challenges of hugely distributed app environments. We explore the role of API gateways in a service mesh and in hybrid clouds.
As 2019 comes to an end, we take a moment to look back at the most popular and noteworthy moments from the NGINX blog.
APIs are playing an increasingly important role in digital transformation at enterprises, in every vertical and region. We review trends in API usage as reported by industry analyst IDC, and explain how NGINX solves the challenges that companies face in deploying and managing APIs.
Many popular mobile apps rely on "real-time" APIs, which can process an API call end-to-end in under 30 milliseconds. Explore many real-world examples --- ride hailing, cashierless stores, credit card fraud detection, and IoT -- and learn why you need NGINX, the only real-time API solution.
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.
Your APIs need the same level of security, scalability, and visibility as your web applications. API gateway functionality is built into NGINX Plus, together with its many other high-performance features. NGINX Controller manages your API gateways and provides full API lifecycle management.
As enterprises adopt DevOps, frequent policy changes on hardware ADCs introduce risk and require testing by NetOps teams. Solve the problem by augmenting your ADCs with DevOps-friendly NGINX. Our resources will guide you as you research, evaluate, and implement NGINX.
