Wyn Enterprise: Deploying with Reverse Proxy

A reverse proxy is an intermediary server between the users and the origin server of your application. It handles the HTTPS requests sent by users and the corresponding responses received from the server to improve its efficiency, performance, security, and reliability. Also, reverse proxy provides load balancing for smoother web experiences.

The following diagram illustrates the working of a reverse proxy.

For example, the built-in services in the cloud (Azure, AWS), network hardware in the enterprises, and various software such as Nginx and HAProxy.
