How has it helped my organization?

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features would be the following: * Reverse proxy routing * Authentication * Caching * The ability to manipulate requests and responses * Load balancing, etc.

How has it helped my organization?

What needs improvement?

I would say ModSecurity 3.0 for NGINX Core, but they just released that. The biggest room for improvement would be to allow NGINX Core machines to cluster for memory zones in some way with a Plug and Play module.

How has it helped my organization?

It lowered overall bugs and increased system stability. Also, it allowed our system to serve many more clients than the old system did.

What needs improvement?

Only improvement needed that I would point to is scalability. With it, I mean clusterized organisation on a low level. At the moment, the best alternative is RHEL HA.
