F5 Announces New Application Services Offering for Multi-Cloud Environments

F5’s software-based solution lets customers easily add ‘right-sized’ services tailored for individual applications

F5 Networks has introduced BIG-IP Cloud Edition, available May 31, enabling customers to quickly deploy critical application services for every app and any environment.

BIG-IP Cloud Edition is offered as a per-app virtual Application Delivery Controller (ADC) that can apply and automate policy-based services at each step in the development and production pipeline. This approach empowers app owners to better collaborate with NetOps, DevOps, and SecOps within an agile framework to significantly improve the performance, availability, and security of all applications.

BIG-IP Cloud Edition combines F5’s broad portfolio of application services with the dramatically enhanced management, visibility, and analytics capabilities of BIG-IQ. F5’s software-based solution lets customers easily add ‘right-sized’ services tailored for individual applications, multiple cloud environments, and user demands.

As a prominent use case, the solution enables customers to deploy Advanced Web Application Firewall policies to address sophisticated application threats in a consistent way across public and private clouds.

Highlights of the new BIG-IP Cloud Edition include:

* Enterprise-grade services and protection with an all-software ADC solution.
* Dedicated and right-sized application services for every application in any environment.
* Self-service catalog of app services for automated provisioning, configurations, and upgrades.
* Per-app visibility, analytics, and auto-scale capabilities.
