NGINX Plus Review

Provides load-balancing for our two Keycloak single sign-on instances


What is our primary use case?

We use NGINX 1.12.x free version as reverse proxy to Java application servers (WildFly and Tomcat) on single instances, and use it as a load-balancer for our two Keycloak single sign-on instances too. We use AWS EC2 instances here.

How has it helped my organization?

We were just Apache 2.0 before NGINX. However, we have not compared the results of both.

What is most valuable?

Load-balancer feature, because I tried to do same with Apache 2.0 and HAProxy without sucess.

What needs improvement?

Instance service health check on the NGINX load balancer feature could be improved.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.
