NGINX is the world’s most popular open source web server for high-traffic websites.

NGINX Plus adds enterprise-ready features such as load balancing, monitoring and advanced management to give developers freedom to innovate without being constrained by infrastructure.

NGINX Plus provides:

A high-performance HTTP Server, delivering web and video assets with unparalleled speed, maximizing performance and efficiency.
A Web Accelerator, providing SSL and SPDY acceleration, HTTP connection optimization, high-performance caching and HTTP compression.

An Application Gateway for PHP, Ruby, Java and other application types, supporting FastCGI, uWSGI and HTTP Proxy interfaces.
A Load Balancer and Application Delivery solution, giving reliability, control and consistently excellent performance.
NGINX Plus is exactly what our customers need to reduce the complexity of managing their applications. The additional load balancing, monitoring and caching features allow NGINX Plus to become a single application acceleration tool replacing a number of other tools in the application stack.”

Key Benefits

Scalability and Performance
Serves a million users or more per server, tens of thousands of requests per second, with best in class multi-tenancy for virtual hosts. Easily scale it out for unparalleled efficiency.
Capability
Future-proof, IPv6-ready reverse proxy with load balancing, application request routing, content acceleration and caching. Alternative solution to hardware ADC or load balancer, effectively delivering users’ traffic to the application.
Predictability
Works predictably, without spikes — can run effectively on low power chipsets or virtual machines with limited RAM. Eliminate unexpected issues with operations and reduce infrastructure costs.
Simplicity
Flexible, logical, easily scalable setup — ten lines of directives enable load balancing or static content delivery. Don’t waste engineering hours on tweaking unreadable configurations.
Virtualized
Built to optimize CPU and memory resource utilization. Extremely efficient in virtualized public and private cloud environments. Pay less, get more.
Automation
Easily automated with tools like Puppet and Chef. Can be managed by independent development teams. Shift engineering focus from maintenance to innovation.
