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.
Owen Garrett leads the product and go-to-market strategy for NGINX’s web acceleration and delivery technologies. Owen has over 15 years of experience in software engineering and product leadership at companies such as Riverbed. Today, Owen uses his technical and management expertise to optimize NGINX products and customer satisfaction.
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.
We discuss new NGINX support for HTTP/2 server push and proxying gRPC traffic
NGINX now proxies gRPC traffic, so you can terminate, inspect, and route gRPC method calls. Manage encryption and load balance gRPC traffic.
HTTP/2 Server Push is new in NGINX 1.13.9. Learn how to use it to accelerate your website performance in this blog post.
The Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities stem from commonly found security flaws in microprocessors. They require patches to most OSs.
The long-awaited ModSecurity 3.0 web application firewall (WAF) is available now. Learn how to get started using ModSecurity 3.0 with NGINX and NGINX Plus.
