At NGINX Conf 2019, we conducted more than 50 recorded sessions covering various subjects. This blog shares takeaways from one of the hottest topics in the industry: Site Reliability Engineering (and also the related topic of Chaos Engineering).
Business Needs a Smarter Mousetrap to Catch Next-Generation Attacks.
Cloud-native applications are being built at a good clip. While they're not quite dominating app portfolios just yet, they are increasing in number.
Soon, every organization dealing with multiple interconnected devices and rapid data processing demands will need an edge computing strategy, not to mention the technology to make it all work.
The pressure to transform digitally has become universal. Whatever your strategy is, the trick is to figure out how to deploy and manage applications in a consistent way across all your different infrastructure silos. The best way to do this—and to get visibility into your code-to-customer pathways for all of your applications—is to leverage a consistent set of multi-cloud application services.
APIs create value through their ability to abstract at the application layer. For example, the use of an API to abstract access to internal systems and data provides a way to simplify and automate access to legacy IT systems.
All cloud journeys are unique and can be complicated, with very different objectives, strategies, and hurdles. So let’s take a look at how F5 can help you and your applications wherever you are in your cloud journey.
It doesn’t matter how fast you can deliver if deployment delays release. While NetOps are warming up to automation and orchestration, there are significant challenges facing their efforts to speed up deployment.
In recent years, enterprises in every industry sector have been embarked on a digital transformation journey in one way or another.

Digging through Sumo Logic's latest data - compiled from actual usage of more than 2000 customers - we see an increase in Kubernetes usage specifically in AWS.
For seven weeks in July and August, F5 partnered with Girls Who Code to host 20 high school junior and senior girls in our new downtown Seattle headquarters with two goals: teach them coding skills and prepare them for a potential career in technology. In saluting their accomplishments on the International Day of the Girl, Kara Sprague provides a retrospective blog detailing this effort tied to F5's Global Good Program.
Today, "machine" also includes code running independently on devices, APIs, containers, serverless architectures, and of course VMs. Because they are software-defined, these machine types are easily created, changed, and destroyed throughout the day, every day, making software-defined machines an important part of the app development workflow.
Breaches abound. Vulnerabilities are discovered on a daily basis, and the patch gap doesn't seem to be getting any smaller.
F5 has a cloud-based solution available called the F5 DNS Load Balancer Cloud Service that leverages the AWS SaaS Enablement Framework and is now available in AWS Marketplace. While load balancing has traditionally been handled on-prem quite successfully, Roger Barlow outlines the many advantages of a SaaS-based approach.
Peter Silva provides a quick introduction to NCSAM 2019, highlighting the theme of “Own IT. Secure IT. Protect IT.”, and also touching on resources F5 provides to help customers better secure applications.
