“Summertime and the livin’ is easy…” If you activate a trial of NGINX Plus from the AWS Marketplace by July 31, 2014 and use it for a minimum of 120 hours before August 31, 2014 you will receive a $100 AWS Promotional Credit.
NGINX Plus is available in a free 30‑day trial and with this offer your cost for running on Amazon Web Services (AWS) will also be free up to the promotional credit. This is a great opportunity to try out all the advanced features of NGINX Plus on AWS such as application load balancing, health checks, advanced cache control, live activity monitoring, and dynamic reconfiguration.
Getting Started on AWS
Begin with the instructions in Amazon EC2 Getting Started.
You can read about some great use cases for NGINX Plus in cloud and multi‑cloud scenarios:
- Building high‑availability clusters (you can use Amazon Elastic Load Balancing [ELB] with NGINX Plus too, of course)
- Basic load balancing
- More sophisticated load balancing
- Implementing access controls across locations – A very popular use case if you store protected content on S3 (for example)
- Using the PROXY protocol – A great tip if you want to terminate SPDY traffic or load balance WebSocket connections on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), as ELB does not have this capability on its own
