NGINX is open source software for web serving, reverse proxying, caching, load balancing, media streaming, and more. It started out as a web server designed for maximum performance and stability. In addition to its HTTP server capabilities, NGINX can also function as a proxy server for email (IMAP, POP3, and SMTP) and a reverse proxy and load balancer for HTTP, TCP, and UDP servers.

MORE IDEAS FROM What is NGINX?

Nginx is a reverse proxy for Gunicorn. Gunicorn can serve an app that supports WSGI (like Flask or Django) and Nginx sits in front of it and decides where a request should go. For example, if the incoming request is an http request, Nginx redirects it to gunicorn (hence the reverse proxy), if it is for a static file, it serves it itself.
