We explore three factors that hamper the speed of software development and delivery: dev teams are battling fatigue, tools aren't automated, and infrastructure is too complex. Find out how NGINX Open Source, NGINX Plus, NGINX App Protect, and NGINX Controller can help.
We announce eight solutions that unleash developer speed without sacrificing the control infrastructure teams require. Get the details on NGINX Controller, App Protect, Ingress Controller, Service Mesh, and Analytics Cloud Service; F5 DNS Cloud Services; and Red Hat integrations.
With NGINX App Protect, you no longer have to choose between security and performance. It combines the proven effectiveness of F5’s advanced WAF technology with the agility and performance of NGINX Plus, to address the security challenges facing modern DevOps environments.
We announce the technology preview of NGINX support for QUIC+HTTP/3 as pre-release software, available for interoperability testing, feedback, and code contributions. HTTP/3 replaces TCP with QUIC, which is designed to support multiplexed connections more reliably.
On 14 September 2020 we released an update to the NGINX Plus ModSecurity module (for NGINX Plus R20, R21, and R22) in response to CVE-2020-15598. We encourage NGINX Plus subscribers to upgrade to the patched module.
We explain why duplicating application services paradoxically can improve overall efficiency: because NetOps and DevOps teams have different mandates, it makes sense for them to select and manage the tools that best suit their specific needs.
Internal APIs are the real powerhouse of the API economy. We review some of their key benefits (efficiency and cost savings among them) and outline best practices, which include using an API management solution and high-performance API gateways, and decoupling the control and data planes.
We discuss how you can use a DNS service like F5 DNS Load Balancer Cloud service to implement three methods for seamlessly and safely deploying application updates to production environments: blue-green, rolling blue-green, and canary releases.
F5 Essential App Protect is a simple, pay-as-you-go, SaaS-based security service for securing apps proxied by NGINX and NGINX Plus. Based on F5’s 20+ years of app security expertise, it's a DevOps-ready service that protects against the security threats faced by modern apps.
We explain how to run NGINX Plus in compliance with the FIPS 140-2 Security Requirements for Cryptographic Modules standard, which specifies the cryptographic protocols that are accepted by the U.S. Federal government and many other organizations.
With the Fortanix Self-Defending Key Management Service, you can offload TLS crytographic processing from your NGINX and NGINX Plus servers, and safely store your TLS keys for on-demand uploading into the NGINX Plus key-value store. We provide complete instructions for both use cases.
Three NGINX customers replaced a legacy API management solution with NGINX Controller. We highlight the challenge faced by each customer and how Controller solves it, while delivering self-service, super-low latencies, and integration of API management into CI/CD pipelines.
We present a reference architecture for real-time APIs, based on work with NGINX’s largest, most demanding customers. We encompass all aspects of the API management solution but go deeper on the API gateway which is responsible for ensuring real-time performance.
The first NGINX for Good hackathon takes place September 14-17, 2020, coinciding with the NGINX Sprint virtual conference. Working with a team, you'll build a website or application that helps others. The winning app will be hosted by NGINX for six months.
