Building Dynamic App Infrastructure with NGINX

September 11, 2019 1:45 pm — September 11, 2019 2:20 pm 

In this session Francisco takes a look at all the resources that NGINX provides for managing dynamic configurations for applications, including DNS resolution, health checks, API automation, and the NGINX Ingress Controller for Kubernetes. He covers how to use the features, use cases, best practices, and how to improve NGINX usage with open source tools (Consul and CoreDNS for DNS resolution use cases, containers for application health checks, configuration automation tools for API automatio, and Kubernetes ConfigMaps and Templates for the Ingress Controller).

He explores the different ways NGINX supports automation and how they can be integrated with other tools using some logic to extend their usage.
