Snapt Nova Overview with Cloud Controller

Next-generation app delivery with Nova

Nova is purpose built for modern requirements.

Native GSLB

Nova's standard license includes a global GSLB network with 25 POPs on 5 continents. Nginx Plus has no GSLB capacity. Nova's GSLB enables true autoscaling in multi-cloud, geographic routing.

Unlimited Autoscaling

Nova enables automatic scale-out and scale-in of ADCs. Nginx Plus suggests third-party tools and manual orchestration scale-out. Nova also supports service discovery for autoscaled cloud services.

Integrated Orchestration

Nova allows you to deploy, scale, and replace Nova nodes automatically. It integrates directly with your infrastructure providers and can even self-heal ADC clusters.

Built-in WAF

Nova's WAF has more features than Nginx Plus and includes central management and data sharing across organisations. Block traffic on all ADCs simultaneously. WAF is included in the standard Nova license.

AI-Powered Security

Nova can scale-out automatically to handle massive SSL workloads. Nova deploys intelligent security to mitigate DoS attacks, with flexible and ML-driven dynamic reactions to traffic.

Modern Pricing

Nova ADC costs $99 per month per Node, and you only pay when they are running. Integrate with CI/CD for cents! Compare this with Nginx Plus pricing.
