NGINX Plus delivers consistent, always available, high-performance web services from your Amazon Elastic Cloud Compute (EC2) environment.
When organizations select cloud platforms like AWS, they sometimes find that the available tools for application delivery don’t match the sophistication of the enterprise-grade traffic management devices in their own data centers.
NGINX and NGINX Plus bring the power and control you need in your AWS environment, so you can operate services and deliver content at the high standard your customers and developers demand. 36% of websites on Amazon AWS use NGINX because of its performance and reliability, even in small instance sizes.
NGINX, Inc. provides full technical support for Amazon EC2 subscribers. Subscribers receive email support to cover bug reports, product specific inquiries and queries relating to reference documentation, and all NGINX Plus software updates during their subscription period.
NGINX Plus supports domain and URL switching and routing, giving you greater control over how traffic is load balanced. This simplifies and reduces costs by enabling you to deploy multiple applications behind a single tier of ELB frontends.
NGINX Plus works with your applications to ensure that your users get the best possible performance, even in the face of large traffic spikes. SSL/TLS offload, caching, and bandwidth and rate control combine to deliver content to your users in a predictable and secure manner.
Based on the massively popular open source NGINX web server, NGINX Plus integrates easily with DevOps deployment processes. Simple text configuration files can be managed by standard tools such as Puppet, Chef, and Zookeeper. Load-balancing targets can be managed and updated by DNS – a key requirement in dynamic cloud environments.
