Web Server Load Balancing with NGINX Plus

Updates to NGINX Unit for Summer 2021

NGINX Unit 1.23.0 and 1.24.0 introduce support for the SNI extension to TLS, definition of OpenSSL configuration commands, MIME filtering and path restrictions for static content, and multiple Python scripts in one app. Also, you no longer need to modify Node.js apps to run them in Unit.

Scaling MySQL with TCP Load Balancing and Galera Cluster

TCP load balancing of MySQL nodes in a Galera cluster takes advantage of NGINX Plus' advanced features, including high availability, health checks, logging, and monitoring. We also use NGINX JavaScript to extract the contents of request and response packets for logging the SQL method in each client request.

Our Roadmap for QUIC and HTTP/3 Support in NGINX

We describe the state of our QUIC+HTTP/3 implementation, starting with a review of the work we've done so far. Our roadmap includes merging the nginx-quic development branch into the NGINX mainline and implementing performance optimizations. You can help by testing the implementation.
