Getting Started with BIG-IP DNS (formerly GTM)

The topics presented in this course are organized around a customer scenario involving a company that is expanding their network infrastructure globally, and wants to use GTM’s intelligent DNS resolution capabilities to resolve DNS queries based on the geolocation of the query originator. During the course, you’ll learn about GTM’s role in the DNS resolution process, discover how to configure many aspects of global server load balancing (GSLB) including data centers, servers, virtual servers, wide IPs, and wide IP pools. You’ll learn how GTM uses iQuery to communicate with other BIG-IP systems. You’ll learn how to create topology records and apply topology load balancing to select a DNS query response based on geolocation information. Finally, you’ll learn how to set up a GTM sync group that spans multiple data centers.
