Deploy Layer 4/Layer 7 Load Balancing, HTTPS, HTTP/2 and TLS 1.3 with NginX

NginX is an open-source web server written in C and can also be used as a reverse proxy and a load balancer.

In this course, I want to go through the following topics in NginX

  • What is NginX?
  • NginX Use Cases
  • Layer 4 and Layer 7 Proxying in Nginx
  • Example
  • Install Nginx (mac)
  • Nginx as a Web Server
  • Static content
  • Regular expression in NginX
  • proxy_pass
  • Nginx as a Layer 7 Proxy
  • Proxy to 4 backend NodeJS services (docker)
  • IP_Hash load balancing
  • Split load to multiple backends (app1/app2)
  • Block certain requests (/admin)
  • NGINX as a Layer 4 Proxy
  • Create DNS record
  • Enable HTTPS on Nginx (lets encrypt)
  • Enable TLS 1.3 on NginX
  • Enable HTTP/2 on NginX

What you’ll learn

  • Layer 7 Load Balancing between services
  • Layer 4 Load Balancing between services
