Modern day web applications are dynamic, and they require a load balancing solution that can keep up. With demand for services in a constant state of flux, resources constantly being provisioned and released, NGINX can gracefully handle the load, and the adjustment in the landscape.

This webcast will cover HTTP load balancing with NGINX in a dynamic environment. Topics will include:

  • HTTP Load Balancing
  • Limiting request rates and access
  • Dynamic Reconfiguration with NGINX Plus, or Consul Template
