Challenges

Customers today demand optimal digital experiences. Content must be delivered instantly to a global audience. Achieving desired performance can hinder origin infrastructure.

Operational complexity

Organizations often struggle to expand workloads to the edge and to manage and secure apps and workloads across distributed environments using a variety of point solutions.

Limited flexibility

Traditional CDN and serverless architectures often tie all compute, services, and deployments to the provider's infrastructure, with limited ability to deploy locally.

Lack of observability

Many operate without sufficient visibility into network and app performance, client data, security, and more across their ever-expanding ecosystem.

High total cost of ownership

Delivering assets and applications at scale can become costly and time intensive as demands on performance evolve.

Why F5 Distributed Cloud CDN?

Performance at scale

Optimize global app delivery and performance with CDN caching capabilities paired with distributed cloud and edge technology to support workloads wherever necessary.

Comprehensive security

Protect web applications and APIs with comprehensive Web App and API Protection (WAAP) capabilities that are easy to deploy and operate.

Flexibility and agility

Leverage workload and service portability with critical CDN functionality to enable microservice-based apps and workloads, security, and other app services to be deployed anywhere compute, networks, and storage are available.

Visibility and observability

Get advanced analytics and insightful dashboards that deliver the actionable insights needed to manage performance, security, and changing application demands.

Operational simplicity

Simplify app delivery and management via a single pane of glass to allow engineering teams to focus on business value creation.

Key Capabilities

 

Built on a high-performance, secure global private network, F5 Distributed Cloud CDN enables rich digital experiences for end users. Distributed Cloud CDN integrates with critical app security services to empower your organization as it pursues multi-cloud and edge-based initiatives.

Secure multi-cloud and edge app delivery

Leverage integrated security including web application firewall (WAF), distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) mitigation, API security, and bot defense from the same platform purpose-built for multi-cloud and microservice-based edge workloads.

Global availability

Obtain efficient global delivery via the high-capacity F5 global network and high availability leveraging F5’s DNS and load-balancer services to balance traffic across multiple origin servers spanning public and private clouds.

Centralized control plane

Reduce operational complexity, optimize application performance, and increase the security efficacy of your app by observing end-to-end application traffic and events.

Easy to configure caching policies

Get caching policies that are easy to configure and simple to use. Distributed Cloud CDN avoids “bias” by caching only what the origin tells it to cache.

Supports modern content

Achieve the support needed for modern content types, including content required for websites and API traffic. Performance is optimized based on file type.

Cloud agnostic

Benefit from more flexibility across public and hybrid cloud solutions, fewer limitations on deploying app security, greater control over traffic routing, and the ability to direct where workloads are deployed.

Why F5 Distributed Cloud CDN?

Modern digital experiences

Deliver modern dynamic experiences across multiple public and private clouds, edge locations, and on-premises environments.

Easily scale at the edge

Increase performance by running workloads closer to end users and gear up for future growth.

Secure apps everywhere

Mitigate web app attacks and vulnerabilities with comprehensive security controls and uniform policy and observability, including simplified deployment and management of app security across environments.

Ways to Deploy

F5 Distributed Cloud Services are SaaS-based security, networking, app management, and content delivery network (CDN) services that enable customers to deploy, secure, and operate their apps in a cloud-native environment wherever needed—the data center, multi-cloud, and network and enterprise edge.

Manage and protect application workloads and cache content from points of presence (PoPs) on the F5 global network.
