With NGINX Controller’s API Management Module, you define an API just once and publish it to as many environments as you want. This “create once, publish many” approach eliminates user errors as well as saving time and effort, especially if you have to define a lot of APIs.
NGINX Unit 1.8.0 introduces internal routing of requests based on host, URL, and HTTP method, This sets the framework for full Layer 7 request processing, necessary for further development of Unit's web server functionality.
The Signal Sciences Certified Module for NGINX Plus brings additional modern web and API security to the NGINX Plus platform. The combined solution helps enterprises replace outdated legacy WAF and load-balancing appliances, such as the F5 Advanced WAF and F5 BIG-IP.
In this inaugural post in our "Ask NGINX" series, we explain how to convert F5 BIG-IP iRules and Apache rewrite rules to NGINX syntax, use NGINX as an API gateway and NGINX Controller for full API lifecycle management, and implement blue-green deployment with NGINX.
In his session at NGINX Conf 2018, Timo Stark of Audi shares how his team built the Audi Cockpit, a dashboard on which Audi employees access work apps. NGINX Plus serves as API gateway for the dashboard, which uses AWS-hosted microservices in Kubernetes-managed containers.
Some of the loudest buzz in the IT industry during 2018 was around the concept of service mesh. Here we review some of the major developments in the space, including introductions, enhancements, and consolidations for both commercial products and open source projects.
The Load Balancing Module in NGINX Controller 2.0 has a new configuration-centric, policy-based approach for configuration management to complement the existing instance-centric approach; integration with ServiceNow; control over logging; and an offline installation method.
The NGINX Controller API Management Module is next-generation solution for defining and publishing APIs, managing and securing API traffic, monitoring performance, and analyzing usage. In short, it manages the entire lifecycle of APIs without compromising performance.
NGINX Plus covers all API gateway use cases, from traditional monoliths to distributed microservices. No need for the separate microgateway that first-generation API management vendors have had to bolt onto their solutions to handle modern application architectures.
