About this talk

In this webinar, Zipwhip’s Principal Architect, Kolby Allen, describes: - The business and technical challenges his team faced - Why they chose NGINX Ingress Controller and AWS to power their modern apps - The benefits of the joint solution - How Zipwhip Site Resiliency Engineering (SRE) and DevOps teams are leveraging these technologies We also demo how easy it is to deploy NGINX Ingress Controller in Amazon EKS. Zipwhip was the first company to enable texting on existing business phone numbers, and today is the world’s leading business‑texting software and API provider. More than 35,000 companies use Zipwhip to increase customer engagement and drive growth through texting on their existing landline, VoIP, or toll‑free phone number. To achieve this scale, Zipwhip transformed its traditional core architecture (physical data centers, VMware clusters, storage arrays, firewalls, and switches) to a modern architecture that incorporates cloud providers, Infrastructure as Code, repeatability, and Kubernetes. In building out this large, complex infrastructure, Zipwhip prioritized simplification whenever possible, choosing NGINX Ingress Controller as the main ingress into its Kubernetes environment and so much more.
