NGINX, Inc., will partner with IBM to support its solution, NGINX Plus, for the IBM Cloud Private platform.
"Enterprises are tasked to accelerate the pace of application development using modern, cloud-native tools such as containers and Kubernetes," said Robin Hernandez, director of IBM Cloud Private. "IBM Cloud Private, along with NGINX Plus, helps customers to meet this challenge by providing a flexible, open source-based solution, with an option for supported enterprise features to help ensure these applications can meet the standards required for a production environment."
NGINX Plus, the enterprise version of the NGINX open source software already integrated into IBM Cloud Private, allows companies to deliver their applications with a commercially supported Ingress controller along with advanced functionality needed for scaling production Kubernetes environments.
The IBM Cloud Private platform enables organizations to create a flexible, controlled cloud-native environment on systems in internal or external data centers. Underpinned by open-source Kubernetes container technology, IBM Cloud Private has architecture and capabilities consistent with public clouds, simplifying development and management of applications across multiple cloud environments.
Already a leading containerized solution, NGINX Plus provides native deployment and configuration for IBM Cloud Private along with a full complement of capabilities for enterprise deployments including advanced load balancing algorithms, content-based routing, TLS/SSL termination, URI rewriting, session persistence, authentication, and detailed monitoring of key performance and load balancing metrics.
"We’re excited to partner with IBM to provide an enterprise-grade Ingress controller option for customers who need to scale their production Kubernetes environments," said Paul Oh, head of business development at NGINX, Inc. "As customers look to adopt a microservices-based application portfolio, we are proud to bring the advanced features and capabilities of NGINX Plus to IBM Cloud Private.”
