Announcing the NGINX Core collection on Ansible, with three roles to help you automate installation and configuration of NGINX Open Source, NGINX Plus, and NGINX App Protect. The collection is available in both community and supported versions.
We walk through a bash script for setting up a WordPress deployment on Ubuntu that's managed by NGINX Unit and uses NGINX for web serving. The resulting WordPress deployment is scriptable, supports Let’s Encrypt, and has production-ready settings.
We compare the performance of the community, NGINX Open Source, and NGINX Plus Ingress Controllers in a dynamic Kubernetes cloud environment. As the number of Pod replicas scales up and down, only the NGINX Plus Ingress Controller doesn't incur high latencies.
On 14 September 2020 we released an update to the NGINX Plus ModSecurity module (for NGINX Plus R20, R21, and R22) in response to CVE-2020-15598. We encourage NGINX Plus subscribers to upgrade to the patched module.
We discuss how you can use a DNS service like F5 DNS Load Balancer Cloud service to implement three methods for seamlessly and safely deploying application updates to production environments: blue-green, rolling blue-green, and canary releases.

With the Fortanix Self-Defending Key Management Service, you can offload TLS crytographic processing from your NGINX and NGINX Plus servers, and safely store your TLS keys for on-demand uploading into the NGINX Plus key-value store. We provide complete instructions for both use cases.
