F5 & NGINX: Traffic Management, WAF, and GSLB

September 10, 2019 4:45 pm — September 10, 2019 5:20 pm 

Digital transformation is changing the way that application services are deployed and managed, but one familiar concept remains core to successful application deployments: traffic management. Containerized environments and agile infrastructure tools have revolutionized agile east‑west traffic management while highlighting core traffic‑management issues that remain of paramount concern, such as getting traffic into the environment (data center or cloud) via tools like global server load balancing (GSLB), securing that traffic at the edge based on application logic, and managing egress traffic that may need to access remote services. In this session, Alan and Armand explain how F5 and NGINX solutions work together to route, secure, and manage all of your ingress, east‑west, and egress application traffic needs.

They explain how F5 and NGINX tools work together to manage and secure application traffic from the client all the way through to the app, including full traffic management before the edge, at the edge, through cloud environments, and into highly agile and distributed containerized environments.
