MRA AMA Part 10: Kubernetes and the Microservices Reference Architecture


The NGINX Microservices Reference Architecture (MRA) has been a major contributor to discussion of microservices architectures. Kubernetes has now emerged as the leading container orchestration platform, and NGINX has developed the NGINX Ingress controller.

In this webinar, we describe and demonstrate how to use NGINX Open Source and NGINX Plus with Kubernetes and NGINX Ingress controller. We relate the use of NGINX tools and Kubernetes to the MRA's Proxy Model, Router Mesh Model, and the Fabric Model. We also briefly compare these to full service mesh implementations such as Istio.

In this webinar, we’ll cover:

More about the growing role of Kubernetes in application design of all types


How NGINX Ingress Controller helps you use NGINX and Kubernetes together

Why NGINX and Kubernetes are a great combination for all sorts of application architectures
