NGINX is one of the most widely used web servers available today, in part because of its capabilities as a load balancer and reverse proxy server for HTTP and other network protocols. This revised cookbook provides easy-to-follow examples of real-world problems in application delivery. Practical recipes help you set up and use either the open source or commercial offering to solve problems in various use cases.

For professionals who understand modern web architectures such as n-tier or microservice designs and common web protocols such as TCP and HTTP, these recipes include proven solutions for security and software load balancing and for monitoring and maintaining NGINX's application delivery platform. You'll also explore advanced features of both NGINX and NGINX Plus, the free and licensed versions of this server.

You'll find recipes for:

  • High-performance load balancing with HTTP, TCP, and UDP
  • Securing access through encrypted traffic, secure links, HTTP authentication subrequests, and more
  • Deploying NGINX to Google, AWS, and Azure Cloud Services
  • NGINX Plus as a service provider in a SAML environment
  • HTTP/3 (QUIC), OpenTelemetry, and the njs module
