Software has replaced hardware in many application delivery stacks, but a set of single-purpose solutions is nearly as complex and hard to manage as hardware. NGINX Plus consolidates API gateway and load balancing functions into a single, lightweight platform.
Owen is a senior member of the NGINX Product Management team, covering open source and commercial NGINX products. He holds a particular responsibility for microservices and Kubernetes‑centric solutions. He’s constantly amazed by the ingenuity of NGINX users and still learns of new ways to use NGINX with every discussion.
In this webinar we discuss how to install the OWASP Core Rule Set (CRS) w/ NGINX & ModSecurity. The CRS protects against many types of attack, including SQL Injection (SQLi), Local File Inclusion (LFI), & Remote Code Execution (RCE).
When Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux) is enabled for Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) and related distros, its default settings prevent NGINX and NGINX Plus from performing some operations. This article explains how to modify SELinux settings to permit full functionality.
NGINX has released version 1.3.0 of the NGINX Ingress Controller for Kubernetes. This release features Prometheus support, better Helm charts, mergeable Ingress resources, easier custom template management, health checks, and status reporting. Come to Github and get it.
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 this webinar we help you get started using NGINX, the de facto web server for building modern applications. We cover best practices for installing, configuring, and troubleshooting both NGINX Open Source and the enterprise-grade NGINX Plus.
A newly discovered security threat exploits a configuration that allows remote users to specify the server for a request in the HTTP Host header, and thus access potentially sensitive information. In this post we explain how to prevent this "cloud metadata" attack.
Two NGINX APIs - status, which reads extended status data, and upstream_conf, which manages upstream group configuration - have been deprecated. They will be removed as of the upcoming NGINX Plus R16 release! Read this blog post to learn how to switch over to the new, unified NGINX Plus API.
NGINX Unit 1.0, a multi-language applications server, launched today. Unit supports Python, PHP, Perl, Ruby, and Go, with more languages to come. Unit is dynamically configured using a REST API; there are no process reloads or service interruptions required for configuration changes to take effect.
A service mesh is a configurable infrastructure layer for microservices application that makes communication flexible, reliable, and fast. It’s implemented through a sidecar proxy for service discovery, load balancing, encryption, authentication and authorization, circuit breaker support, and more.
