NGINX Open Source 1.21.4 introduces support for kernel TLS (kTLS), which boosts performance by significantly reducing the need to copy data between user space and the kernel. We provide complete instructions for enabling kTLS in NGINX and share results of our performance testing.
An Ingress controller can be one of the most powerful tools in your Kubernetes stack. Learn how to determine your ingress requirements so you can select the best option.
Releases 3.20 through 3.22 of the NGINX Controller Application Delivery Module combine to improve our powerful governance, observability, and operations platform for NGINX Plus deployments and the applications they support. Get all the details about the new features.
We performance test NGINX Ingress Controller and the default Red Hat OpenShift Router in an OpenShift Cloud Platform cluster while scaling the number of backends up and down. The Router experiences significant latency and errors, but NGINX Ingress Controller almost none.
Do you need an Ingress controller to accept traffic into your Kubernetes environment? To help you decide, we offer a primer on the other services for getting external traffic into a cluster: kube-proxy, Cluster IP, NodePort, and LoadBalancer.
We recently jumped the NGINX Ingress Controller version number from 1.x to 2.x, to signal compatibility with version 1 of the Kubernetes API (released in Kubernetes 1.22). Find out why this matters and how to keep your Kubernetes apps running smoothly as versions change.

When you need an API gateway in Kubernetes, how do you choose among API gateway vs. Ingress controller vs. service mesh? We guide you through the decision, with sample scenarios for north-south and east-west API traffic, plus use cases where an API gateway is the right tool.
With NGINX Plus as an API gateway, you can use JSON Web Tokens (JWTs) to control access to your APIs. We explain how to configure the gateway for JWT-based authentication, issue JWTs to API clients, rate limit, log claims from the JWT, and revoke JWTs.
Deploying NGINX as a caching reverse proxy in front of Amazon S3 and S3-compatible object stores has two benefits: NGINX caches requests to your object store and prevents unwanted discovery of its contents. Get complete installation and configuration instructions.
