Today at NGINX Sprint 2.0, we're announcing how we'll support our vision for the future of moderns app with a bigger presence in the open source community, including participation in the community Kubernetes project, new OSS projects, and the Modern Apps Reference Architecture.
NGINX Unit 1.23.0 and 1.24.0 introduce support for the SNI extension to TLS, definition of OpenSSL configuration commands, MIME filtering and path restrictions for static content, and multiple Python scripts in one app. Also, you no longer need to modify Node.js apps to run them in Unit.
The NGINX Controller App Security add-on for Controller API Management provides an app-centric, self-service way for app teams to boost their API security with integrated WAF protection. Security teams can still define policies and monitor APIs for compliance.
Delivering an excellent experience every time a customer accesses an app is a key part of success in modernization. We offer advice on different paths to modernization, and formulate four principles for developing and managing APIs to provide optimum user experiences.
What exactly do we mean when we talk about "modern apps"? We describe four key features that we believe an app must have to be modern -- scalability, portability, resiliency, and agility -- and six principles to guide development of your own modern apps.
Learn which NGINX Ingress controller is best for you, based on authorship, development philosophy, production readiness, security, and support.
The built-in live activity monitoring dashboard tracks NGINX Plus metrics in real time, and can get additional insight from visualizations of performance over time. In this demo and blog we show how to generate time-series graphs of NGINX Plus metrics using Prometheus and Grafana.
The Ingress controller is an ideal location for centralized authentication and authorization in Kubernetes. We show how to implement single sign-on with NGINX Ingress Controller as the relaying party and Okta as the identity provider in the OIDC Authorization Code Flow.
With Opsani you can optimize NGINX Ingress Controller performance in the cloud. Powered by machine learning, Opsani processes metrics collected by Prometheus to ensure that the right amount of resources is consumed for higher performance and lower cost.
As you evaluate Ingress controllers, you’ll notice they fall into three categories: open source, default, or commercial. Learn the pros and cons for each here.
With NGINX Controller App Security for version 3.20 of the Application Delivery Module, you can now import your custom F5 Advanced WAF and NGINX App Protect WAF policies and distribute them across all your managed deployments. We call this Bring Your Own NGINX App Protect WAF Policy.
Learn about risks you might introduce by selecting the wrong Ingress controller, and key areas where you can future-proof your selection.
Small is beautiful when it comes to containers in test and dev environments: they take less time to build, use less memory, and have a smaller attack surface. We explore tools and provides instructions for building images that are a small as possible.
