Load Balancing with Nginx and Docker
The previous post showed how to use Nginx as a reverse proxy to an ASP.NET Core application running in a separate Docker container. This time, I’ll show how to use a similar configuration to spin up multiple application containers and use Nginx as a load balancer to spread traffic over them. Desired architecture The architecture […]Read Full Post
Nginx Reverse Proxy to ASP.NET Core – Separate Containers
The previous blog post showed how to setup a reverse proxy between Nginx and an ASP.NET Core application. In that example, both Nginx and the Kestrel process ran in the same box. As alluded to, there is another (preferable) option. This time, we’ll create two separate containers: one for the application and one for the […]Read Full Post

In this example, I’m going to show how to use Nginx as a reverse proxy to the ASP.NET Core application. Reverse-proxy architecture options In terms of architecture setup for reverse proxying for ASP.NET Core in […]Read Full Post
