NGINX Plus Primary Use Case

Andrii Stesin
Startup Founder at a tech services company
In my architecture (which is a microservice architecture with some special advances), NGINX serves multiple purposes. Namely: * Application Gateway with an application-level firewall tool and load distributor & balancer (also serves for A/B testing). * Rate limiter and bandwidth limiter (session-based). * Source of real-time logs, consumed by intrusion detection system. * "Circuit breaker" for the whole complex of microservices. No other tool can compare to it. View full review »

We build all our websites (of which we have multiple, from production sites to development environments), through webpack, so we use NGINX to quickly host them, while easily binding to the relevant (sub)domains. Our entire service stack runs on Linux. Our most challenging part was to run an older PHP website reverse-proxied through NGINX. That was not fun. View full review »

NGINX has been primarily used as a web server, which is also used as a load balancer. The robust software architecture allows for it to be scalable and very stable. View full review »

I am using the NGINX web server as my web server, especially to run PHP applications and Python. The main reason that I am using NGINX in these environments is micro caching. NGINX is a lightweight web server. View full review »

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. View full review »
