Pros: Simple configuration, lots of features, speed, and reverse proxying. Most important, it just 'feels better' than alternatives.

Cons: Support for meta-config could be better: when sharing templates among vhosts, the limitations of how you can use variables are a surprise.

Overall: Something about Nginx feels qualitatively 'better' than Apache. I know that's subjective, but that sort of thing matters when you have to manage a flotilla of Nginx instances in your daily work. The configuration files just make sense to me in a way that Apache config files never did. The config language is very expressive and lean. It's a versatile server; you can use it as an application proxy, a reverse caching proxy, a forward proxy, and of course a plain ol' web server.

(Disclaimer: I've only ever used the open source Nginx, but the commercial version has some very compelling features that I know I've wished I could use.)

Pros: My team uses NGinX for configuring our development servers and locations, using variables, rewriting URIs to redirect to the appropriate service based on hostname. NGinX makes this process light and easy. We develop multiple different sites and services. NGinX is lightweight and you can be up and running quickly. It does everything I need as a web server and I really have no complaints so far.

Cons: NGinX is really for high level server admins. I can be complex because all the configurations are text based files and if you do not understand what you are doing it will cause issues.

Overall: We benefit by using NGinX as our primary development web server that points traffic to the correct corresponding service base on hostname. This allows development to easily work on multiple projects with multiple languages and/or versions simultaneously.

Pros: ease of use of Api implemented in Restful service. From c# code to exposed services i can use android studio (java) and make use of the endpoints. Load balancing is also sorted via nginx. Nginx is an already with security as well as api cannot be sniffed over the network. Theyre excrypted. deploying an app to our UAT/Beta environment replicates a real world scenario.

Cons: There is a huge learning curve when you have to intregrate into another layer but once set up it is easy to re-use. Every new person that has come onto the team has struggled to set up but internal documentation has been created to set up internally for Android SDK.

Pros: Excellent tool, to combine it with virtualized servers with virtual box. My team and I specialized in ubuntu server and nginx virtualized servers to create our development and testing environments. It is comfortable and easy to work with, its handling of clean URLs is very easy.

Cons: It is a very complete and robust tool that from time to time is difficult to learn for those who have little experience in configuring web servers, but once learned a developer will not want to change it.

Pros: The easy install and the flexibility of the configuration styles, is one of the most secure engine at the marked.

Cons: it would be nice to have a more optional modules already integrate at the default installer,for example like another flavor of installer, at least with the most used modules.

Overall: Great stability and security.

Pros: The fact that it is build on top of Nginx is already a big plus, however even better is the fact that Nginx Plus supports session persistent and can help you to improve the user experience.

Cons: At first, it may be quite challenging to understand how all the pieces fit together.

Pros: nginx has been rock solid and a stellar performer. I moved to nginx from apache (which worked fine) and prefer the configuration syntax as well.

Cons: It can have a learning curve and there's less support available as compared to other industry leaders likes Apache and IIS.

Overall: Great performance, reliability, and security at a great price.

Pros: The only pro I can pull out of PLUS is their stats dashboard and the fact you pay and get support.

Cons: I find the free version of Nginx is much better and has all the same modules available, minus the support (which you can find most issues for free on the internet, probably)
