Investment to fuel continued growth of popular web server software
and professional services portfolio
The evolving nature of the Web, including the growth of mobile and the explosion of dynamic content, places extraordinary demands on applications to handle the increased traffic and performance expectations of users.
“Almost every commercial website and web application in the world is experiencing the impact of managing traffic from mobile devices. In addition, many are also using API’s to integrate with both internal and external applications which amplifies the traffic burden. Nginx’s speed and efficient use of resources has established our technology as the default content delivery and acceleration tool for over 120 million sites around the world, and has made us the most popular web server for the top one thousand busiest websites,” said
“Since the launch of NGINX Plus we have seen an amazing level of interest from customers wanting to deploy our subscription offering. We already have over 100 customers using NGINX Plus today and many are also engaging our professional services to assist them with architecting and tuning their applications,” said
This round of investment will allow Nginx to increase development efforts for both the community and commercial version of NGINX and also further build out their global sales, services and support organization to handle the increasing customer demand. Company executives anticipate growing headcount from 15 employees today to 50 in 2014.
