Hardware‑based application delivery has been an effective approach for telcos for two decades. When creating exciting new products and services, however, softwar‑-based approaches offer greater advantages. Today, using modern software and cloud‑focused approaches to building new services can accelerate time‑to‑market while keeping costs low.
NGINX Plus, running on industry‑standard infrastructure, is a software‑based alternative to hardware application delivery controllers (ADCs). It combines the features you rely on – load balancer, web application firewall (WAF), content cache, web server, and rich application monitoring and management capabilities – into a scalable and easy‑to‑use software package. Our customers have reported cost savings of up to 80% after moving to NGINX Plus.
