A reliable solution for load balancing, cluster production and more

What is our primary use case?

We use NGINX as solution for load balancing our cluster production. Currently, we don't have any plans to increase the usage because each license costs around $2000 - $2500.

Pros and Cons

  • "I think installation only took a couple of minutes — no more than 10 minutes."
  • "The scaling should be built into the software rather than configured from an outside source."

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution. I think it works for a smaller cluster — it really depends on what your team is trying to achieve. I think it's a really good product for startup projects of medium size clusters, but once your customer base starts hitting big numbers then managing clusters becomes challenging. If you go beyond the limit, then you'll start to see a negative impact. On a scale from one to ten, I would give this solution a rating of Nine.
