About the webinar

A delay of even a few seconds for a screen to render is interpreted by many users as a breakdown in the experience. There are many reasons for these breakdowns in the user experience, one of which is DDoS attacks which tie up your system’s resources.

Rate limiting is a powerful feature of NGINX that can mitigate DDoS attacks, which would otherwise overload your servers and hinder application performance. In this webinar, we’ll cover basic concepts as well as advanced configuration. We will finish with a live demo that shows NGINX rate limiting in action.
