The move to microservices is a seismic shift in web application development and delivery. Because we believe moving to microservices is crucial to the success of our customers, we at NGINX have launched a dedicated program to develop NGINX software features and development practices in support of microservices.
We also recognize that there are many different approaches to implementing microservices, many of them novel and specific to the needs of individual development teams. We think there is a need for models to make it easier for companies to develop and deliver their own microservices‑based applications.
With all this in mind, we have developed the NGINX Microservices Reference Architecture (MRA) - a set of models that you can use to create your own microservices applications.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is an emerging network superstructure that will connect physical resources and actual users. It will support an ecosystem of smart applications and services bringing hyper-connectivity to our society by using augmented and rich interfaces. Whereas in the beginning IoT referred to the advent of barcodes and Radio Freque...
For cloud users and providers alike, security is an everyday concern, yet there are very few books covering cloud security as a main subject. This book will help address this information gap from an Information Technology solution and usage-centric view of cloud infrastructure security. The book highlights the fundamental technology components nece...
With Kubernetes came many new concepts, particularly around networking and traffic management. Alongside these new concepts were entirely new classes of tools, designed for ephemeral, containerized, and distributed application deployments. In particular, Ingress controllers and service meshes did not exist prior to the Kubernetes era. Nor were Laye...
Many forces affect software today: larger datasets, geographical disparities, complex company structures, and the growing need to be fast and nimble in the face of change. Proven approaches such as service-oriented and event-driven architectures are joined by newer techniques such as microservices, reactive architectures, DevOps, and stream process...
This guide is an introduction to developing microservices-based applications and managing them using containers. It discusses architectural design and implementation approaches using .NET Core and Docker containers. To make it easier to get started with containers and microservices, the guide focuses on a reference containerized and microservice-ba...
