The Power of F5 and NGINX
NGINX Controller 3.0 released
Since the NGINX acquisition, F5 and NGINX have been integrating teams, listening to customers, and planning our first release as a unified company. Now, we have introduced NGINX Controller 3.0, which allows you to manage apps and services across a variety of deployment models, including multi-cloud scenarios. NGINX Controller 3.0 shifts from an infrastructure-centric to an application-centric design, improving developer productivity and accelerating time-to-market for new applications.
In this article, learn about core NGINX concepts and explore new NGINX documentation on AskF5.
