ARM Native Processors deliver higher performance results



NGINX is an open source, high performance HTTP server and reverse proxy with many other web service-related features bundled. NGINX is commonly used as load balancer, reverse proxy and http server in many popular high-traffic websites. With the astounding performance lead NGINX shows on Ampere Cloud Native processors, it is a highly recommended workload to pair with Ampere on-premise or Cloud instances available on several popular providers today. The key performance metrics shown here are:

  • Performance: Throughput measured in total Requests per second
  • Power Efficiency: More throughput delivered per Watt
