Achieve Full API Lifecycle Management Using NGINX Controller - EMEA


Infrastructure & Operations and DevOps teams have to grapple with many challenges as their enterprises’ APIs gain wide adoption both internally and externally, and the number of APIs and API gateways increases. APIs need to be managed in an efficient manner across their entire lifecycle, and API gateways need to be updated with the latest API policies. API management includes defining, publishing, documenting, securing, routing, monitoring, troubleshooting, and analyzing the usage of your APIs to assess their value. Those management activities must not degrade the performance of the API gateway itself, which is responsible for routing and mediating traffic.

That’s where NGINX Controller’s API Management Module comes in.

The NGINX Controller API Management Module combines the raw power and efficiency of NGINX Plus as an API gateway with new control‑plane functionality. The result is a simple user interface that offers powerful functionality for Infrastructure & Operations and DevOps teams to define, publish, secure, monitor, and analyze APIs.

In this webinar, we’ll cover:

How to manage API definitions and their component resources, define upstream groups and their backend servers, and route resources to upstreams

How to boost developer productivity by enabling teams to deploy new APIs faster with environment‑specific, policy‑driven management

How to mitigate DDoS attacks and protect your applications from being flooded with malicious or errant API calls by setting rate limits

How you can meet and exceed SLAs by finding the root cause of performance issues and troubleshooting them quickly
