Moving Forward in Your Microservices Journey with an API Gateway

Great microservices applications are backed by strong APIs. But APIs are complex, and management solutions are expensive.

Here’s what you really need to know about routing microservices traffic, including:

-What is an API gateway?
-Where does your API management tool live in your stack?
-What new security concerns are being introduced by APIs and microservices?
-What problems can an API gateway solve on your journey from monolith to microservices?

Join this webcast with Charles Pretzer, Technical Architect, and Floyd Smith, Director of Content Marketing at NGINX as they answer these questions and more for migrating to a microservices architecture.

  • The Journey to Modern Application Delivery: From DNS to Kubernetes [APAC] Recorded: Oct 29 2019 38 mins
    Mark Boddington, Enterprise Solutions Architect, NGINX
    Docker and Kubernetes are considered standard components when building and orchestrating applications today. Yet you’re still responsible for managing applications built with “traditional” tools. How do you meet the demands of new, microservices applications, while still maintaining the legacy, monolith ones?


    As technologists, we value innovation and discovering new tools and solutions. This webinar does just that, but first we take a look back at how we got here. Join this webinar to learn:


    •The history of current trends in computing - cloud, containerization, and Kubernetes

    •How load balancing and network architecture have evolved from basic DNS to complex systems that support new development styles like CI/CD, A/B testing of code releases, and self service

    •Challenges that come along with virtualization, distributed applications, and multi/hybrid cloud

    •Solutions to reduce the complexity of enterprise application infrastructure, including a new platform from NGINX, now part of F5, that bridges the gap between traditional hardware and newer software solutions

  • Achieve Full API Lifecycle Management Using NGINX Controller Recorded: Jul 17 2019 56 mins
    Liam Crilly, Director of Product Management, NGINX
    Infrastructure & Operations and DevOps teams have to grapple with many challenges as their enterprises’ APIs gain wide adoption both internally and externally, and the number of APIs and API gateways increases. APIs need to be managed in an efficient manner across their entire lifecycle, and API gateways need to be updated with the latest API policies. API management includes defining, publishing, documenting, securing, routing, monitoring, troubleshooting, and analyzing the usage of your APIs to assess their value. Those management activities must not degrade the performance of the API gateway itself, which is responsible for routing and mediating traffic.

    That’s where NGINX Controller’s API Management Module comes in.

    The NGINX Controller API Management Module combines the raw power and efficiency of NGINX Plus as an API gateway with new control‑plane functionality. The result is a simple user interface that offers powerful functionality for Infrastructure & Operations and DevOps teams to define, publish, secure, monitor, and analyze APIs.
    Join the webinar to learn:
    - How to manage API definitions and their component resources, define upstream groups and their backend servers, and route resources to upstreams
    - How to boost developer productivity by enabling teams to deploy new APIs faster with environment‑specific, policy‑driven management
    - How to mitigate DDoS attacks and protect your applications from being flooded with malicious or errant API calls by setting rate limits
    - How you can meet and exceed SLAs by finding the root cause of performance issues and troubleshooting them quickly

    Attend this webinar and learn how to manage the entire lifecycle of your APIs using NGINX Controller. This includes defining, publishing, securing, routing, monitoring, troubleshooting, and analyzing usage of your APIs to assess their value. Get an overview and demo of NGINX Controller’s API Management Module.
  • The Rise of DevSecOps: Pushing Security Further Back into Dev Recorded: Jul 10 2019 40 mins
    Rob Whiteley, VP Marketing at NGINX at F5 Networks
    DevOps teams today are challenged with outplaying hackers, whose tools and practices have grown increasingly sophisticated. However, some of the most common problems in secure application development and deployment often stem from uncertainty about dev and ops responsibilities. Under pressure to build and deploy software quickly, it’s easy for one side to think the other has completed the necessary security tasks.

    In his session, Rob Whiteley, VP of Marketing for NGINX at F5 will discuss the differing responsibilities of dev and ops teams that need to be clearly defined to ensure alignment on security.

    This webinar will discuss the trends affecting security in DevOps, why security should be pushed further back to the development team, and practical advice on the roles, responsibilities, and metrics that dev and ops teams should implement.
  • Enterprise CDN Best Practices: A Technical Deep Dive Recorded: Jun 20 2019 32 mins
    Armand Sultantono, Technical Solutions Architect at NGINX
    If you deliver content over the internet to a global audience and care about performance, you're likely using a content delivery network. CDN is a popular use case for advertising, media, online gaming, commerce, mobile, healthcare, even government and education because users can access web pages and apps much faster. What you may not know is most major CDN providers use NGINX under the hood. Commercial CDN services can be expensive to scale, limited in fine-grain control and customization, and offer fewer performance optimizations that you would want. If your enterprise CDN bill is astronomically high, and you need more control and customizations, it will be more cost effective to build your own.

    Watch this webinar to learn how a CDN works, when it makes sense to build your own CDN, and jump into a technical deep dive on how a CDN solution performs with NGINX Plus, with performance comparisons and a live demo.
  • Scale your application to new heights with NGINX and AWS Recorded: May 16 2019 56 mins

  • Application Delivery in the Age of DevOps Recorded: Apr 9 2019 46 mins
    Karthik Krishnaswamy, NGINX Director Product Marketing
    AWS deploys code every 12 seconds. Fidelity, a large financial services corporation, has reduced release time from days to just 1-2 hours.

    How did these enterprises achieve such agility? The obvious answer is embracing DevOps -- including agile processes, DevOps tool chains, and a culture of continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD).

    But world-class companies go beyond surface-level DevOps adoption. They’ve embraced technologies that build on containers, microservices, and modern application architectures. Whether you’re “cloud native” or “webscale” or not, you can still learn lessons from companies that have paired DevOps with the right application infrastructure.

    NGINX has experience working with the largest, most successful digital pioneers in building out modern application architectures. As one of the most widely deployed open source projects of all time, NGINX has a unique vantage point between the world of developers and operations.

    In this webinar, we will cover

    - A recap of why DevOps is critical to digital transformation
    - Traditional vs modern application architectures -- people, process, and technology
    - How to overcome application delivery challenges in a DevOps world
    - Examples of enterprises delivering great digital experiences pairing DevOps with NGINX
