NGINX Load Balancing is a 4-hour class for system administrators, DevOps, and architects who need a deeper understanding of NGINX load balancing.
NGINX Load Balancing begins with a general review of load balancing. You'll cover load balancer configuration, selection algorithms, and weighting. The follow up activities include: configuring an upstream, session persistence, and enabling extended status / live activity monitoring. The class also covers TCP/UDP load balancing, with active health checks and configuration of routing and IP sourcing. We demonstrate a highly available (HA) NGINX systems in case of node failure. The objective of this class is to enable you to deploy a high performing (ADC) application delivery controller using NGINX Plus and its features.
NGINX Load Balancing is intended for system admins, DevOps, and architects who need a deeper understanding of NGINX load balancing.
NGINX Load Balancing is for people who have completed NGINX Core or who have commensurate experience. Hands on labs require you to run basic UNIX commands, navigate the file system, and editing configuration files using VIM or the like.
