Hybrid Cloud Realized: F5, Azure and Azure Stack
Why do organizations need a WAF? Today, enterprises are extending their businesses by using web-based and cloud-hosted applications, so having a robust and agile web application firewall (WAF) in place to protect them from security threats...
Traditional application delivery has focused on how to manage the network for applications. F5 iApps are a revolutionary new way of focusing on how to manage application delivery through the network, thereby changing how applications are delivered across the data center.
For optimal results, containers must be integrated with an ADC that can deliver superior traffic control and load balancing. Red Hat and F5, both industry-leading technology companies, have partnered to create an integrated, automated container solution that optimizes network configuration for faster, more secure application delivery.
Both Amazon Web Services Elastic Load Balancing and F5 BIG-IP offer compelling value to organizations deploying applications on AWS. Knowing when and where you might need more control, security, or programmability can help you chose the right solution to support your applications—and your business—in the cloud.
For enterprises delivering Internet and extranet applications, TCP/IP inefficiencies, coupled the effects of WAN latency and packet loss, all conspire to adversely affect application performance. The result of these inefficiencies has inflated the response times for applications, and significantly reduced bandwidth utilization efficiency (ability to “fill the pipe”).
