We introduce the beta version of the NGINX Controller Data Forwarder, with an integration for Splunk. You create a single configuration in one place to capture enhanced data from all of your NGINX Plus instances and feed it to the monitoring infrastructure you've already invested in.
We compare AWS Application Load Balancer (ALB) with NGINX Open Source and NGINX Plus as a Layer 7 reverse proxy and load balancer. ALB has more features than at its debut in 2016, but we conclude that NGINX and NGINX Plus still provide more functionality and much more predictable pricing.
Establishing a security perimeter around your intranet is no longer enough to protect your apps. We show how to configure NGINX App Protect to establish the perimeter around individual apps as required by today's distributed applications and Zero Trust security mode
Independent technical research firm GigaOm compared the performance of NGINX and several popular API management solutions. Their report validates NGINX as the only solution that helps you deliver APIs in real time. Read this summary blog and download the full report.
NGINX Unit 1.18.0 introduces filesystem isolation, the 'target' option to reduce redundancy in PHP app configuration, and URL encoding. It also includes features introduced in NGINX Unit 1.17.0: redirects, and fractional server weights for traffic distribution in upstream groups.
APIs are increasingly critical to many businesses, so choosing the right API gateway pattern for your application delivery infrastructure is key. Here we explore five such patterns: edge gateway, two-tier gateway, microgateway, per-pod gateways, and sidecar gateways.
We announce the technology preview of NGINX support for QUIC+HTTP/3 as pre-release software, available for interoperability testing, feedback, and code contributions. HTTP/3 replaces TCP with QUIC, which is designed to support multiplexed connections more reliably.
Learn how to use the NGINX image from the Docker Hub repository and how to create your own NGINX Plus image to easily deploy NGINX in Docker containers.
We announce the latest branches of NGINX Open Source, the stable 1.18 branch and the mainline 1.19 branch. New to the stable branch are dry-run mode for request rate and connection limiting; protection against timing attacks; more support for variable parameters, and more.
