Enterprise CDN Best Practices: A Technical Deep Dive

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, Security, Visibility for Container Apps Oct 29 2020 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Owen Garrett, Head of Product, NGINX
    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.

    Presenter Bio:

    Owen is a senior member of the NGINX Product Management team, covering open source and commercial NGINX products. He holds a particular responsibility for microservices and Kubernetes-centric solutions. He’s constantly amazed by the ingenuity of NGINX users, and still learns of new ways to use NGINX with every discussion.
