NGINX Unit is a key component in our modern platform spans from code to customer: it's configured dynamically via API for no app downtime; it can run apps written in multiple languages and versions at the same time; its small footprint makes it ideal for microservices and deployable on any infrastructure.
Why are F5 and NGINX better together? Because now we can build an industry first: a coordinated set of technologies that span the entire application delivery path, from code running on app and web servers, through transport, security, and management services, to the end customer.
NGINX is now officially a part of F5. In his new role as head of the NGINX business unit at F5, Gus Robertson outlines the value of merging the people, culture, and vision of the two companies as we work together to enhance NGINX's open source and commercial offerings.
Is your API management solution secure when vulnerabilities are found? The NGINX team builds patches into the NGINX Controller API Management Module as soon as they're available. Third-party solutions built on NGINX can leave you vulnerable while vendors test and port patches.
There are always concerns when an enterprise acquires open source projects. NGINX CEO Gus Robertson explains why F5 is committed to maintaining and growing NGINX Open Source and other open source projects.
"Service mesh" is a hot topic, but as of early 2019 most implementations are not production-ready. In this blog we offer advice on adopting existing technologies that are likely to meet the needs of all but the most complex applications until such time as service mesh is more mature.
F5 and NGINX today announced an agreement under which F5 will acquire NGINX for approximately $670 million. Hear from NGINX CEO Gus Robertson on why NGINX + F5 is a powerful combination that will ‘bridge the divide’ between NetOps and DevOps.
NGINX Plus covers all API gateway use cases, from traditional monoliths to distributed microservices. No need for the separate microgateway that first-generation API management vendors have had to bolt onto their solutions to handle modern application architectures.
As a dynamic application gateway, NGINX Plus combines several application-delivery tiers – proxying, SSL termination, WAF, caching, API gateway, and load balancing – into a single, dynamic ingress-egress tier for traffic to and from any application and across any cloud.
A veteran of both companies, NGINX CEO Gus Robertson reflects on IBM’s proposed acquisition of Red Hat. The deal is key to boosting IBM’s relevance in a multi-cloud landscape, but that will happen only if Big Blue preserves Red Hat’s open source culture and community.
