What is most valuable?

NGINX is extremely efficient in terms of the connection rate to the CPU cycles ratio, and in terms of the bandwidth to CPU cycles. It is configurable enough so smart engineers (which team consists of) can configure virtually anything which a... more»

How has it helped my organization?

I have never seen a single case where programmatic tools can change an organization. Tools are not subjects. They are passive objects. Organizations and people are subjects. Tools are just reflections of the organisation and people. Tools... more»

What needs improvement?

I am not so happy with their pricing policy, but this is not the worse thing in my life. I can tolerate it.

What is most valuable?

Our primary use for NGINX is as a Web server, so that’s where we derive the most value. Recently, we’ve needed to deploy sites over a number of servers to balance the load, which was not only painless but also super valuable.

How has it helped my organization?

NGINX isn’t itself a productivity tool, but rather a cog in the engine of a solid service stack. In a way, it's the same as adding RAM to a PC. While you don’t necessarily feel the new improvement, you’ll definitely know when it’s gone.

What needs improvement?

We used the standard tried-and-tested features of NGINX. Everything is done through the CLI over a secure connection and there have not been any issues or additions to our wish list.

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?

We have used it in every project since 2013, setting it as our standard. Our organization is able to use it effectively in multiple applications.

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.

What is most valuable?

Simplicity, stability, and modularity. Because, if you are familiar with Apache, you will know why my first reason is simplicity. Nginx is simple to configure, very stable in a highly utilized environment and very modular, allowing DevOps to... more»

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.

What is most valuable?

NGINX's multi-thread compatibility has been the integral part of it being a robust enterprise solution.

How has it helped my organization?

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.

What needs improvement?

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... more»
