Its most valuable features are load balancing and application delivery. This is the most efficient application for these features because of stability and its efficiency.NGINX works much better than HAProxy in our current hardware and architecture for HTTP/HTTPS load balancing. ​​The robust software architecture allows for it to be scalable and very stable.​The flexibility of its modules allow it to be scalable.​​Zero Downtime has always been a strength in recommending infrastructure web services. NGINX allows me to execute such infrastructure with less complications and the ability to switch from server to server easily.​When I worked in a security research center, we tested NGINX to support DoS and DDoS attacks, and its results were great.

Cons
The pricing is a bit expensive.In the next release, I am looking for more advanced technologies such as socket communication and enhanced features like realtime chat with the clients.If Microsoft would provide a monthly subscription at a cost that a developer can afford then it would be really helpful.They should have more training materials available that are specific to .NET. We spend a lot of money training our engineers.This solution should include Power BI so that we don't have to use any third-party tools.I would like to see more pre-built features in the MVC framework because as it is now, it's very open and you have to develop your own controls in order to use it.Better integration with other tools to make the operation faster would be an improvement.It would be nice if the framework were able to work with additional environments and systems like Linux.

They should do in the open source version of what they did to Advanced HTTP, TCP, and UDP load balancing.Our most challenging part was to run an older PHP website reverse-proxied through NGINX. That was not fun.If NGINX brings some features for health check in the open source version, it would be better. ​Make modules easier to enable or disable. The beauty and ugly side of the NGINX modules is you have to know how to compile the module. For beginners or non-very technical aspirant(s) going for NGINX, they have to learn how to compile the modules.​I would like it to have a more user-friendly graphical interface.
