F5 Networks has announced the release of NGINX Controller 3.0. NGINX Controller is a tool used for load balancing, API management, analytics, and service mesh.
Version 3.0 is the first major release of the tool since F5 acquired NGINX. “This is our first major product introduction since we joined forces with F5 in May, and it highlights the unique value proposition of NGINX and F5 together,” said Gus Robertson, SVP and GM of NGINX at F5. “Controller 3.0 provides the foundation for developer and DevOps self-service, at scale. We’ve designed the user experience to be centered on the asset that businesses care about most: their apps. This is a big departure from previous infrastructure-centric solutions. Plus, customers’ apps can now be configured by a new API. We’re excited to hit this major milestone. Stay tuned as we continue adding value in each monthly release.”
