Nginx can be deployed to serve dynamic HTTP content on the network using FastCGI, SCGI handlers for scripts, WSGI application servers or Phusion Passenger module, and it can serve as a software load balancer. Its development started in 2002 by Igor Sysoev. In July 2011, a company was formed as Nginx, Incorporated, registered in the British Virgin Islands. Its principal place of business was San Francisco, California. The company offered commercial support in February 2012. An investment of $10 million led by New Enterprise Associates was reported in October 2013. Other investors reportedly included Aaron Levie.
