Rapid Blue/Green Deployments in Any Environment

Secure and stabilize your customers’ digital experience during blue/green rapid deployments with F5 load balancing solutions.

Managing the Risk of Rapid Deployment

Rapid deployments create a lot of risks for your digital experience and customer trust. Blue/green deployments help reduce risk, but apps are increasingly complex and scaling fast. You need load balancing to respond to next-generation distributed apps. F5 can help.

Multi-Cloud Traffic Distribution

Expand load balancing policies across cloud providers with your applications. F5 provides industry-defining load balancing solutions to make intelligent traffic decisions for all of your applications. Monitor and measure application health on any platform and reroute application traffic to minimize deployment headaches with F5.

Increase Application Availability

Quickly route users to new deployments with intelligent event-driven traffic decisions. Move beyond application-unaware load balancing and quickly reroute users to working environments if problems arise with custom monitoring and highly customizable traffic policies. Keep deployments rolling without impacting users.

Control Testing with Greater Accuracy

Elevate canary deployments to greater flexibility with F5 load balancing solutions. Route user traffic based on network or user metadata to create multiple user traffic policies giving your dev and product management teams simultaneous environmental testing without impacting your customers. F5 offers better load balancing and traffic policy control so you can build better apps, faster.

Adaptive Load Balancing for Modern Applications

Integrate key services into your CI/CD pipeline

F5 offers load balancing solutions to build the next generation of multi-cloud and containerized applications. Use your CI/CD pipeline vendors to simultaneously deploy load balancing and security with code and consolidate duplicate native services into a unified traffic management solution with F5.

How F5 Helps

Adaptive Load Balancing

With rich and flexible programmatic options across all F5 solutions, you can easily and rapidly develop adaptive traffic decisions, and then confidently deploy them across multiple applications. Take greater control of app and network traffic across all your application platforms.

Scale blue/green deployment models beyond datacenters and cloud providers

Improve the performance and availability of your global applications by sending customers to the closest or fastest endpoint of your choice—whether a physical, virtual, or cloud environment—with F5 global server load balancing (GSLB). Move traffic across clouds, regions, or the globe with F5 GSLB solutions.

Integrate security with code and balance rapid deployments with customer reliability

Application protection and intelligent traffic routing can be automatically provisioned through the same tools and processes that drive your CI/CD pipeline. This way, your DevOps teams can leverage existing development and deployment pipelines without slowing innovation or increasing company risk.

Protect and optimize containerized applications

For microservices-based apps, you need solutions aligned with a highly dynamic and transient architecture. F5 makes it easy to integrate directly into the container environments, allowing DevOps and SecOps to keep services running without slowing down development.

Platform Support and Integrations

Automate infrastructure-as-code and unify clouds for your apps and customers.

Distributed Cloud Services can be delivered to apps running on any platform, on any public or private cloud. Connect and secure apps running in VMs, containers, bare metal, or serverless.

Support multiple service discovery protocols simultaneously. Consul, Kubernetes, and DNS work out of the box. Istio or Linkerd service mesh can integrate with a Distributed Cloud Services ingress/egress gateway.
