About the ebook
The F5 BIG-IP was a revolutionary product when it was first released in 1996. As the first load balancer to market, it solved an immediate problem by giving website operators the option of scaling out to increase capacity. Scaling out is now the standard way of building applications.
But the IT industry has changed significantly since then. Whereas F5 BIG-IP once enabled organizations to deliver scalable applications, it is now inhibiting progress at those same companies due to its high cost and incompatibility with modern application architectures. In this ebook we provide instructions for replacing F5 BIG-IP with NGINX Plus and commodity servers.
