In a Chaos Engineering experiment, you "inject failure" into a microservices application's environment to test the app's resilience. We discuss important concepts like blast radius, magnitude, abort conditions, and blackhole attacks, which cause dependencies to fail.
The F5 and NGINX control-plane development teams recently integrated their code development practices and tools. They chose GitLab for the code repository, GitLab CI for the development pipeline, and JFrog Artifactory for artifact storage.
NGINX Unit 1.9.0 and 1.10.0 introduce request routing based on matching arguments, headers, cookies, and scheme; appending elements to arrays; a built‑in WebSocket server for Node.js; and new guides for Catalyst, NextCloud, Redmine, Docker, and language modules.
The NGINX agent for NS1 provides rich load and availability data to the NS1 global server load balancing service, for more agile and sophisticated DNS-based load balancing for sites and apps proxied by NGINX Plus at multiple locations. Our deployment guide provides complete instructions.
Amazon EC2 A1 instances deliver up to 40% cost savings compared other instance types when running NGINX Plus as a reverse proxy and API gateway. They're powered by the AWS Graviton Processor, built on 64‑bit Arm Neoverse cores. Download Arm's whitepaper for alll the details.
NGINX Plus R19 extends our monitoring capabilities, both with a larger set of metrics and new ways to analyze them; adds a dry-run mode for testing the effect of rate limiting; enhances the key-value store to support IP address ranges; and makes rate limiting more dynamic.
In performance tests of reverse proxies running in a cloud environment, NGINX Plus consistently outperformed Avi Vantage Service Engine across a range of request rates and file sizes, in terms of both efficient CPU usage and response latency.
NGINX Global Solutions Architect and DevOps expert Kevin Jones provides practical advice on steps in your transition to DevOps: setting goals, choosing the right tools, fostering cross-functional communication, and measuring the success of your transition.
We have released updates to NGINX Open Source and NGINX Plus to fix vulnerabilities in the HTTP/2 protocol that were announced today (CVE-2019-9511, CVE-2019-9513, and CVE-2019-9516). Upgrade as soon as possible to NGINX 1.17.3, NGINX 1.16.1, or NGINX Plus R18 P1.
In this blog we show how to use NGINX Plus for OpenID Connect (OIDC) authentication of applications behind the Ingress in a Kubernetes environment. We provide instructions for all components: Azure as the identity provider, Kubernetes, Docker, NGINX Plus, and a sample application.
