Hi Lee,

I can add some suggestions to help you find out more. We do try to keep the nginx mailing list for technical questions and announcements relating to NGINX open source; do DM me for further information.

There is overlap, and it's not correct to think of BIG-IP as more heavy-duty. NGINX can be equally or more capable.

Different teams (IT and Apps) have different expectations for the products they use. BIG-IP and NGINX are complementary, and we often see both running together. Paradoxically, sometimes duplication leads to better efficiency: https://www.nginx.com/blog/deploying-application-services-in-kubernetes-part-1/

Take a look at NGINX Controller: https://www.nginx.com/products/nginx-controller

Docker is a way to package and share applications in containers. NGINX is very commonly used as part of these lightweight, portable applications.

NGINX Ingress Controller https://github.com/nginxinc/kubernetes-ingress and NGINX Service Mesh https://github.com/nginxinc/nginx-service-mesh are NGINX-based solutions for docker containers running on Kubernetes and related platforms.

Hi Lee,

hope you're doing well these days.

Thanks for your questions in this public maillist. In most cases these
questions are related to the commercial version of NGINX - NGINX Plus.
Follow that, I'd recommend to contact the NGINX Sales Team,
https://www.nginx.com/contact-sales/, to get more details about the products
of interest.

Thank you.
