About the webinar

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 increasing application performance and resiliency.

But the IT industry has changed significantly since 1996. While 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 webinar we cover where F5 went wrong and how to gracefully migrate to NGINX Plus, the load balancer built for modern applications.
