Unlock advanced Kubernetes features

Unlike Kubernetes Ingress resources, NGINX Gateway Fabric delivers many use cases out of the box, including blue-green and canary deployments, A/B testing, and request/response manipulation.

  • Built-In Extensibility: Defines an annotation-less extensibility model with extension points and policy attachments to deliver advanced NGINX data plane features not supported by the API itself.

Product Overview

A secure, fast, and reliable data plane for the Gateway API

The Gateway API is an open source, cross-vendor standardization API project evolved from the Kubernetes Ingress API to solve challenges with ingress objects. NGINX Gateway Fabric is a conformant implementation of the Gateway API specifications that leverages the power of NGINX, one of the most widely used data planes in the world.
