NGINX Service Mesh (NSM) is now available in a development release -- download it for free and give us your feedback! NSM is a fully integrated lightweight service mesh that leverages a data plane powered by NGINX Plus to manage container traffic in Kubernetes environments.
With NGINX App Protect, you no longer have to choose between security and performance. It combines the proven effectiveness of F5’s advanced WAF technology with the agility and performance of NGINX Plus, to address the security challenges facing modern DevOps environments.
We announce the technology preview of NGINX support for QUIC+HTTP/3 as pre-release software, available for interoperability testing, feedback, and code contributions. HTTP/3 replaces TCP with QUIC, which is designed to support multiplexed connections more reliably.
Release 1.9.0 of the NGINX Ingress Controller introduces updated NGINX App Protect features, new policies (JWT validation, rate limiting, and mTLS authentication), improved visibility with new metrics and Grafana dashboards, integration with NGINX Service Mesh, and more.
We explain why traditional API management frameworks don't work in modern, microservices-based app environments. The NGINX API management solution embodies features our customers tell us they need now: decoupled data and control planes, multi-cloud support, and self-service.
Guest blogger Jeremy Schulman offers practical advice for network engineers charged with increasing automation. First, focus on tasks that reduce operational friction among teams. Become familiar with the tools used by various teams, and learn how to use their APIs.
As a network engineer, there are everyday hurdles you face, from outages to design to performance problems. Now you must learn API, too? How do you start understanding the new world? Guest blogger and network engineer Brian Gleason provides guidance on how go about it.
Guest blogger and musician Caleb Dolister discusses an unexpected consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic: how hard it is to play music together remotely. Turns out the variable latency introduced by networks makes it nearly impossible to keep everyone on the beat.
Announcing the NGINX Core collection on Ansible, with three roles to help you automate installation and configuration of NGINX Open Source, NGINX Plus, and NGINX App Protect. The collection is available in both community and supported versions.
We walk through a bash script for setting up a WordPress deployment on Ubuntu that's managed by NGINX Unit and uses NGINX for web serving. The resulting WordPress deployment is scriptable, supports Let’s Encrypt, and has production-ready settings.
Application security is hard, but there are some best practices to help you achieve it: automate as much as possible, build security as a guardrail instead of a gate, select solutions that provide easily understood insights, and make security adaptable, scalable, and reliable.
We compare the performance of the community, NGINX Open Source, and NGINX Plus Ingress Controllers in a dynamic Kubernetes cloud environment. As the number of Pod replicas scales up and down, only the NGINX Plus Ingress Controller doesn't incur high latencies.
We provide guidance on where to deploy application services in a Kubernetes environment, using WAF as an example. Depending on your needs, it can make sense to deploy your WAF at the "front door" of the environment, on the Ingress Controller, per-service, or per-Pod.
