We are using NGINX to provide a reverse proxy in an environment of web services.

It is reliable.

What needs improvement?

I would like it to have a more user-friendly graphical interface.

More than five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No issues yet.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No issues yet.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We used Microsoft ForeFront and changed because it was not stable during DDoS attacks.

How was the initial setup?

It was a simple setup.

NGINX is a free tool in Brazil. There are some companies which do support it. The price is the cost to contract support with a specialized company, usually during consulting hours.
