NGINX Plus Pros

Andrii Stesin
Startup Founder at a tech services company
Nginx is extremely efficient in terms of the connection rate to the CPU cycles ratio, and in terms of the bandwidth to CPU cycles.
Application Gateway with application-level firewall tool and load distributor and balancer (also serves for A/B testing).

Valuable features include authentication, caching, reverse proxy routing, and load balancing.
The best solution, by far, for web traffic control for things in production and just around the house.

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 is simple to configure, very stable in a highly utilized environment and very modular, allowing DevOps to create it's own modules for interactive use with Nginx.

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.​

NGINX works much better than HAProxy in our current hardware and architecture for HTTP/HTTPS load balancing. ​​

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. ​

They should do in the open source version of what they did to Advanced HTTP, TCP, and UDP load balancing.

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.

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.​

If NGINX brings some features for health check in the open source version, it would be better. ​
