Enterprises are moving to a software-defined, private cloud data center model for agility, operational efficiency, and a self-service approach to deploying applications and associated services. They are utilizing a two-tier hybrid services architecture to get the benefits of specialized hardware for front door network services and scalable software for application, stack-specific services. Read this whitepaper to learn how to integrate the necessary services with the orchestration and automation systems of a software-defined data center.
To succeed in this dynamic environment, organizations must create networks that combine core layer 4-7 functionality, programmability, and application fluency into a scalable Application Delivery Network. While these components all bring their individual benefits, the real lasting value lies in the resulting synergy of the combined solution. Read this whitepaper to learn about the five advantages of F5 when evaluating a replacement for Cisco ACE.
To meet the challenges of IT organizations, Cisco and F5 have developed a shared architectural vision and joint solution to simplify networking and solve pain points in next-generation data centers. The solution extends the F5 Synthesis architecture and programmable Software-Defined Application Services (SDAS) within the Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI), helping customers efficiently deliver applications that are fast, secure and available.
