Web Server Load Balancing with NGINX Plus

Timo Stark, Web Developer and Web Solution Architect at Audi

In his session at NGINX Conf 2018, Timo describes his team’s microservices journey. They started nearly a year earlier with nothing more than a vision: build a web application hosted on AWS and driven by APIs. Make it secure, lightweight, fast, stable, and flexible. And they wanted to have fun while doing it!

Timo starts at the very beginning of the journey, progressing from concept through the first AWS infrastructure setup in dev to the production ecosystem with NGINX Plus as an important component at the end.

Specifically, Timo discusses the concepts behind the API gateway and traffic routing to microservices running on Kubernetes in AWS.
