NGINX Plus R16 is a single, elastic ingress and egress tier for applications, consolidating the functionality of a load balancer, API gateway, and WAF with new features like cluster‑aware rate limiting, key‑value store, Random with Two Choices, enhanced UDP load balancing, and more.
This part of our series on deploying NGINX Plus as an API gateway - along with its other rich functionality - focuses on gatewaying gRPC services. gRPC is an alternative to REST APIs for building distributed applications, service mesh implementations in particular.
Attend this webinar and learn how NGINX Controller reduces complexity and achieves significant time & cost savings. Configure, manage, and troubleshoot multiple NGINX Plus instances at scale across both on-premise and public cloud environments. Get an overview and demo of Controller.
In the second post in our API gateway series, Liam shows you how to batten down the hatches on your API services. You can use rate limiting, access restrictions, request size limits, and request body validation to frustrate illegitimate or overly burdensome requests.
The advanced HTTP processing capabilities of NGINX and NGINX Plus make it the ideal platform for building an API gateway. We describe API use cases, show how to configure NGINX to handle them in a way that is efficient, scalable, and easy to maintain, and provide a complete NGINX configuration.
In this webinar we discuss new features in NGINX Plus R15, which includes support for gRPC, HTTP/2 Server Push, enhanced clustering, and OpenID Connect SSO integration
