Nginx: Notes from the Underground

Nginx is a modern, high-performance secure web server. It has been gaining a lot of traction lately, with an emphasis on large sites. Today it reportadly powers roughly 9% of the web.

In this session I will give the 30,000 ft view of using Nginx in generic terms. Explaining its concepts and ecosystem. A configuration for running Drupal with Nginx will be presented and discussed. Its security and performance features. Hopefully you will come out of this session with a clear understanding why running your Drupal site with Nginx is a win.

I will also sparingly touch the vast topic of caching with Nginx. It offers many advantages over using a cache like Varnish, namely SSL/TLS support.
