Explore F5 Distributed Cloud Services for State, Local, and Education Sectors

This event has already taken place. 

State, Local, and Education customers are facing technical challenges ranging from application and infrastructure modernization, cybersecurity concerns, zero trust, and digital transformation initiatives. What makes these projects more challenging is the complexity of dealing with multiple vendors, clouds, and disparate solutions that don’t easily integrate. Plus, there’s the ever-present reality of finding and retaining the skills required to manage each solution.

With F5 Distributed Cloud Services, a SaaS-based offering, we can deliver high-performance networking and security for applications distributed across multiple clouds and edge sites from a single console.

From May to October 2023, F5 is hosting several Test Drive Labs specific to the SLED sector to provide insight into how F5 Distributed Cloud Services can address many challenges with implementing the above initiatives.

Join our hands-on virtual labs to dive deeper into F5 Distributed Cloud Services and learn from our SLED-focused team of engineers. We’re keeping class sizes small to ensure you have the best live lab experience. We’ll be offering seven sessions broken down into three section groups: 

  1. Distributed Cloud Services Fundamentals
  2. Distributed Cloud Services Security
  3. Distributed Cloud Services Insights

Attend and complete all seven labs and achieve an F5 Digital Badge on F5 Distributed Cloud Services.
