MemberCentral Replaces Hardware Load Balancers with NGINX Plus

MemberCentral's hardware load balancers were not able to reliably deliver the hundreds of sites they host. Upgrading the SSL certificate for one site caused outages on all other hosted sites.

Impressed with the functionality of NGINX, MemberCentral then upgraded to NGINX Plus for exclusive features such as health checks, and were able to completely eliminate their hardware load balancers.
