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.
The first half of 2019 has seen significant enhancements to the NGINX Application Platform and related products: the NGINX Controller Load Balancing and API Management modules, NGINX Plus, NGINX Unit, and the NGINX Ingress Controller for Kubernetes. Catch up on what you might have missed!
In this installment of our "Ask NGINX" series, we explain how to install NGINX Plus offline on RHEL/CentOS systems, list currently supported Ubuntu releases, and answer questions about the future of NGINX open source projects now that we're part of F5.
With the NGINX OpenTracing dynamic module, you get distributed tracing data for every application proxied by NGINX or NGINX Plus without having to instrument the applications individually. We provide instructions for configuring NGINX Plus and two sample tracers, Jaeger and Zipkin.
The regular expression (regex) tester for NGINX and NGINX Plus takes the guesswork out of regexes, telling you whether a regex for a location or map block matches values as you intend. It builds the relevant configuration for you and shows the values for capture groups.
In this second part of our series on service mesh, we review recent innovations to several solutions (Consul, Google Anthos, Linkerd, Istio, NGINX Controller, and Tetrate) that improve availability by minimizing the risk of the control plane as a single point of failure.
In this installment of our "Ask NGINX" series, we discuss UDP health checks, having NGINX Plus verify JWTs generated with Microsoft Active Directory, performing client certificate-based authentication for IIS servers, and obtaining metrics for website visits or page views.
