Many companies want to move to microservices, but are held back by unnecessary complexity. In this blog we discuss our vision for reducing complexity and building microservices with the NGINX Application Platform.
A service mesh is a configurable infrastructure layer for microservices application that makes communication flexible, reliable, and fast. It’s implemented through a sidecar proxy for service discovery, load balancing, encryption, authentication and authorization, circuit breaker support, and more.
With IBM Cloud Private, you can deploy Kubernetes-based microservices applications behind your firewall, with NGINX as an Ingress controller.
NGINX now proxies gRPC traffic, so you can terminate, inspect, and route gRPC method calls. Manage encryption and load balance gRPC traffic.
In Microsoft Azure, you can use JWTs with NGINX Plus to handle authentication against Active Directory outside your app's code.
NGINX Plus uses the information in JSON Web Tokens (JWTs) to authenticate clients and route them based on the JWT content.
借助 NGINX Plus API 和键值存储（key-value store）功能，根据网站用户的服务级别设置不同的带宽限制。
HTTP/2 Server Push is new in NGINX 1.13.9. Learn how to use it to accelerate your website performance in this blog post.
You can now download the Unit beta, version 0.6, with advanced process management, Perl support, an official Docker container, and more.
