NGINX Plus gives you enterprise‑grade load balancing with session persistence, active health checks, and dynamic reconfiguration without needing a server restart.
Intelligent, high‑scale load balancing of HTTP, TCP, and UDP traffic is easy with NGINX Plus. Supporting numerous algorithms such as Random with Two Choices, NGINX Plus enables you to maintain high performance whatever your infrastructure.
In the midst of transitioning from monolithic to microservices‑based apps? Is your environment hugely distributed with hundreds of APIs owned by different developers?
With cloud vendors making it easier and easier to deploy API gateways, how do you know which is right for you? NGINX Plus supports all API gateway models – from an edge gateway providing TLS termination and rate limiting, to request routing in a service mesh scenario. Whatever your scenario, NGINX Plus manages API traffic right alongside regular web traffic, translating between protocols while reducing complexity and maintaining the high performance you expect from NGINX.
Bringing session persistence, caching, and multiple algorithms, NGINX Plus maximizes speed and capacity for the resiliency and scale that enterprises need. With active health checks and enhanced security, NGINX Plus as a reverse proxy provides an additional defense against security attacks while ensuring that all requests land at an operational server.
