Software Load Balancers for Your Cloud
Asynchronous, event-based processing gives Nginx a big jump on traditional reverse proxy servers which are bottlenecked by performance constraints of synchronous processing of requests.
No special hardware is needed with it’s software optimized stack.
Quick install with multiple package managers like npm, installers on Linux, FreeBSD, Solaris, Windows, or make files from source. Open source and easy to administer with simple config files.
Triton Container Name Service (CNS) is a completely automatic, universal DNS for your containers and VMs on Triton. It is tightly integrated with Triton to eliminate complexity and simplify operations.
Triton CNS serves address records (both A and AAAA) for containers by instance name and tags. Multiple containers providing the same service can share the same tag and will be returned in the same address record. Because Triton CNS knows when containers are started or stopped, including unexpected stops, the DNS information is automatically updated and requests will be sent to running containers.
