Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

Scale, Security, Visibility for Container Apps

Does your journey to the cloud include containers? If so, you’re not alone. According to Cisco’s Global Cloud Index, 85% of new app workload instances are container-based; that number will reach 95% by 2021. As adoption rises, many organizations find they also need to adopt Kubernetes to automate and orchestrate their container environments. Unfortunately, many teams hit bottlenecks in securing and scaling Kubernetes in production. How do you overcome these security and scalability challenges without limiting developer flexibility?

In this session, we’ll discuss solutions using open source projects that enable developers and systems teams to manage Ingress routing, load balancing, and application services in container and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) deployments. We’ll discuss how all of this can be automated by deploying API-driven technologies as part of your CI/CD pipeline.

  • The Journey to Modern Application Delivery: From DNS to Kubernetes Apr 20 2021 3:00 pm UTC 39 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
  • [Ep.2] Driving Superior Customer Experience & Outpacing Competitors: Modern WAFs Apr 15 2021 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Helen Beal - DevOps Institute | Rajiv Kapoor - Product Marketing, NGINX | Wendy Ng - Cloud Security Architect, OneWeb
    In 2021, a web application firewall (WAF) is essential. Amid prolonged remote working and the pandemic-driven surge in the use of digital services and eCommerce solutions, organizations are facing a bigger threat from malicious website visitors than ever before. In the current day, hackers injecting malicious code instead of an email address to create an account, bypassing web application layers and instantly getting access to SQL databases, are a very real threat.

    The risk to businesses is enormous - no organization can face losing customer trust and data in a crowded, competitive marketplace. But there is a solution: the web application firewall (WAF). WAFs safeguard company data by protecting servers from hackers. All incoming requests are inspected, bad traffic is filtered and attacks are prevented. An integral component of application protection, they’re also a requirement for complying with PCI-DSS, and help protect against the OWASP Top 10.

    However, not all WAFs are created equal. In 2021, It’s crucial to have a modern and lightweight WAF that maps well to business requirements, drives superior customer experience and ultimately helps organizations to outpace their competitors. In episode 2 of Fuel Business Growth and Innovation with New Application Delivery Strategies we’re sharing just what the modern WAF can do.

    Join us to hear:

    - How modern WAFs address some of the most difficult challenges facing modern DevOps environments, including integrating security controls directly into the development automation pipeline
    - Best practices for applying and managing security for modern and distributed application environments such as containers and microservices
    - Why best-in-class WAF strategies support container-based environments and complement components like API gateways
    - And more

    Mike Amundsen, Author, Speaker, Trainer; Kevin Jones, Senior Product Manager at NGINX; Mehdi Medjaoui, founder of APIdays
    In a world In a world increasingly connected with APIs, applications rely on each other to operate. With the continuous demand to always go faster, businesses and customers are expecting everything to be real-time. But, in this highly connected world, a “slow” API in the digital supply chain may make the whole internal production or business workflow fail, or not deliver the expected customer experience. How can we build reliable and fast real-time architecture? What monitoring best practices do you need to apply to achieve speed and guarantee safety at the same time? What paradigm do you need to understand to transition to an Event-Driven architecture?


    In our next API scene webinar, we will discuss why API performance is critical and needs to be addressed on both the technical and business sides; how can we address it internally; and what do we need to build to make it real.


    This webinar will feature Mike Amundsen, author of many books on APIs and including API Traffic Management (O’Reilly) who will present his best practices and recommendations about managing the traffic of your APIs to ensure speed and safety at scale.


    We will also be joined by Kevin Jones, Senior Product Manager at NGINX, who is an expert on delivering fast and reliable architecture with the NGINX API gateway. He will share how to build real time APIs infrastructure with NGINX. The webinar will be moderated by Mehdi Medjaoui, founder of APIdays conferences and co-author of Continuous API management (O’Reilly).
