App security is vital for public cloud users. While Azure ensures the security of its infrastructure, the onus is on application owners to secure the apps themselves, as well as the data within them. All F5 application services, including our industry-leading web application firewall, are available for use in Azure. By combining these services, you can leverage all the benefits of the public cloud with the same industry-leading security, availability, and performance capabilities available to data-center hosted applications.
F5 offers a number of specialized solutions in the Azure Marketplace. And with our Azure Resource Manager templates, you can rapidly deploy and configure application services. F5 tested and verified solutions, including our auto-scaling LTM, can be implemented and operational in an Azure virtual network within minutes.
F5 application services are also available in a variety of throughput and consumption options for our core Good, Better, Best licensing models.
Microsoft allows for the creation of truly hybrid cloud architectures through its Azure Stack offering; an extension of Azure for on-premises deployments. F5 builds on this hybrid cloud model by offering consistent security, availability, and performance services for applications running in both Azure and Azure Stack. BIG-IP VEs can currently be purchased via BYOL (Bring-Your-Own-License) or subscription-based consumption models for Azure Stack.
Rapidly deploy, configure, and automate BIG-IP Virtual Editions with Azure Resource Manager templates.
“One of the most important factors in our decision was the flexibility and comprehensive nature of the F5 solution.”
