Any app, any device, any cloud.
VMware provides the digital foundation that runs, manages, secures, and connects applications in a multi-device and multi-cloud world. F5 integrates with VMware to deliver consistent security and performance for apps running across VMware cloud on AWS, end-user computing, and software-defined data center environments—in other words, the anywhere enterprise.

Business-critical apps require consistent protection, identity, access, and availability when moving between VMware-based, on-premises environments and public cloud environments. Common challenges include:
App identity: Identity federation and Single Sign-On (SSO), F5 Access Policy Manager (APM), BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager (LTM).
App access: Secure access (SSL VPN) to VMware
Cloud on AWS (VMC) for employees, contractors, and partners.
App protection: BIG-IP Virtual Edition and F5 Advanced WAF.
App availability: Local and BIG-IP DNS and SSL offload and intercept.
Customers often create custom orchestration workflows for application delivery control that require separate workstreams from separate IT groups, resulting in isolated pockets of automation—pockets that aren’t easily managed and deployed by vRealize Automation.

Users demand access to their applications, from any device, anywhere. With this growth in app delivery requirements, infrastructure and methodologies must match availability requirements while providing a secure and scalable solution. And that solution must perform consistently across different types of cloud data center platforms.
