Deploying NGINX Plus as an API Gateway, Part 3: Publishing gRPC Services

2018-08-25 KENNETH 0

Deploying NGINX Plus as an API Gateway, Part 3: Publishing gRPC Services This is the third blog post in our series on deploying NGINX Plus as an API gateway. Part 1 provides detailed instructions for several use cases of NGINX Plus as the API gateway for RESTful, HTTP‑based APIs. Part 2 extends those use cases and looks at a range of safeguards that can be applied to protect and secure backend API services in production. This post explains how to deploy NGINX Plus as an API gateway for gRPC services.
