NGINX is a high-performance load balancer that boosts performance of applications and makes them more secure and reliable. It helps you cut costs by a huge margin and save as much as 80% of the money spent on hardware load balancers. It is highly scalable which means you can use as much or as less resources as you need. NGINX can be deployed to run anywhere, be it public cloud or private cloud or hybrid cloud. Once you start using NGINX, you won't ever feel the need to go back to hardware load balancers. It is that good!
