Latest Version of NGINX Plus Boosts Application Availability, DevOps‑Driven Deployment, and Improved Functionality on Amazon EC2
SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–NGINX, Inc., the high performance web company, today announced a new release of its commercial product. Available immediately, NGINX Plus Release 3 is the latest commercial update of NGINX’s popular web application accelerator, designed to meet the needs of enterprises seeking high‑performance application delivery in a flexible, cost effective software deployment package.
“We worked intensively with our key clients and the engineering team to deliver the next level of performance and availability with this release of NGINX Plus.”
NGINX’s web server software delivers more than 20% of all websites on the Internet, and nearly 40% of the top 1,000 websites by traffic rank. NGINX Plus builds a complementary application delivery solution on top of the NGINX OSS technology, focusing on web application acceleration, content and application delivery, Layer 7 load balancing and request routing. Users benefit from reduced complexity of operations, additional features, certified builds and expert support.
Since its release in August 2013, NGINX Plus has been deployed by commercial clients of all levels, looking for a modern solution to their website performance and scalability issues. NGINX Plus’ price/performance and software flexibility challenges the legacy application delivery solutions used by much of the industry.
Among others, NGINX Inc. has recently welcomed Yandex (one of the largest internet companies in Europe) and Gogo (a global leader of in‑flight connectivity and wireless in‑flight digital entertainment solutions) as commercial users of NGINX Plus.
“This is a very important milestone for us,” said Gus Robertson, CEO of NGINX, Inc. “We worked intensively with our key clients and the engineering team to deliver the next level of performance and availability with this release of NGINX Plus.”
NGINX Plus Release 3 continues to deliver on NGINX’ goals of helping users to deliver web‑based applications across any platform, enabling devops teams to automate deployment and improving the ease‑of‑use and functionality of NGINX’ technology. It includes enhancements to:
- Shape and control traffic to application servers for improved performance and reliability, particularly under unexpectedly high traffic spikes;
- Support dynamic DNS‑based load balancing configuration;
- Enable highly available SPDY and WebSocket load balancing in conjunction with Amazon ELB, through support of the novel PROXY protocol
NGINX Plus Release 3 also includes updates from the NGINX open source product, including commercial support for SPDY/3.1.
