NGINX Unit – a new generation dynamic web server with unique architecture

Description:

In September 2017, we released the initial beta version of our new open-source project NGINX Unit, which is now in process of active development. It is based on the unique new generation architecture and is currently able to function as a flexible and effective Application Server. From this lecture you will learn: why the new server was created, what its key advantages are, what capabilities it already offers, and what tasks it is able to perform. You will also learn about its architecture and, if time allows, its user-friendly JSON RESTful control interface that makes you able to handle your Web applications quickly without connection losses and service interruptions.
