Popular apps can be vulnerable to traffic surges that overwhelm the APIs and cause cascade failures. In this tutorial, Daniele Polencic of learnk8s demonstrates how to use multiple NGINX Ingress Controllers combined with enable rate limiting to prevent Kubernetes apps and APIs from crashing.
Unit 3 of Microservices March 2022 addresses the all-important topic of security in Kubernetes. Here are links to the resources you need: the livestream on March 21, blogs and other prep resources, and the hands-on lab, “Protect Kubernetes Apps from SQL Injection”.
Traffic surges can cause bottlenecks, leading to dropped connections and lost customers. In this tutorial, Daniele Polencic of learnk8s shows how to reduce latency for a Kubernetes app by autoscaling the number of NGINX Ingress Controller pods in response to high traffic.
Unit 2 of Microservices March 2022 is all about how to expose your APIs in Kubernetes. Here are links to the resources you need: the livestream taking place on March 14, blogs and other prep resources, and the hands-on lab, “Protect Kubernetes APIs with Rate Limiting”.
We've completed the first phase of adding observability to the NGINX Modern Apps Reference Architecture (MARA). Here's how and why we chose OpenTelemetry as our base solution, and how we integrated it and other solutions to implement seven aspects of observability.
Microservices March 2022 is underway! Here are links to all the resources for Unit 1: the livestream taking place on March 7, blogs and other resources that provide more in-depth knowledge, and the self-paced, hands-on lab, “Reduce Kubernetes Latency with Autoscaling”.
More and more organizations, including the U.S. government, are recognizing the need for Zero Trust security. ZT is particularly important for distributed environments like Kubernetes. Follow our seven practical guidelines to implement ZT more easily and effectively.
DNS over TLS (DoT) and DNS over HTTPS (DoH) are two emerging technologies for securing Domain Name System (DNS) traffic. In this post we take a look at the history of DNS and show how to implement DoT, DoH, and a DNS filter using NGINX Open Source and NGINX Plus.
We help you avoid the 10 most common NGINX configuration errors, explaining the problems caused by each and how to fix them. Errors include insufficient file descriptors per worker, disabling proxy buffering, and not using upstream groups and keepalive connections.
