Applications make life changing experiences happen every day for consumers. Savvy organizations understand that the services they offer may well be the next great experience—which is why they work so hard to create robust applications that delight customers and bring them to market as fast as possible using agile methodologies.
To meet this demand for high-value applications developed at the speed of thought, IT pros and developers alike are making use public cloud for development and/or to deliver “cloud-native” services. This is the reason organizations often end up in a multi-cloud environment, where IT has to solve the challenges of new technologies, ensure service consistency, remain compliant, and avoid cloud lock-in.
Join this webinar to learn more about how F5:
- Supports the journey to a multi-cloud environment whilst being able to maintain the same standards
- Helps deliver application availability and enforce security policies wherever applications are deployed
- Simplify the deployment of consistent policies across clouds with F5

When NetOps and SecOps teams do not (or are unable to) participate in automated application delivery processes, applications can be released without adequate security or traffic management controls. The result? Poor user experiences and increased business risk as well as significant challenges with post-release management and operability.
But it doesn’t have to be this way.
Rapid provisioning of scalable services through declarative APIs or service catalogs gives the SecOps and NetOps teams the tools they need to protect the application and maintain compliance without adding friction to the software delivery lifecycle. Changing manual processes into automated ones helps NetOps and SecOps teams manage thousands of instances and apps at scale.
But how do you get started with automation? In this webinar, we’ll show how the F5 Automation Toolchain makes it faster and easier to deploy and configure F5 application services via declarative interfaces and introduce you to training to help you expand your skills.
What you'll learn:
- How F5’s Automation Toolchain Application Services 3 Extension (AS3) can help you automate easily.
- How to use AS3.
- Telemetry streaming basics.

As a result of a significant ideological mismatch between app dev teams and enterprise network and security teams, apps are getting released into market without important traffic management and security services attached to them.
Most well-functioning CI/CD pipelines handle the integration and deployment of code with minimal human intervention. However, many still manage application services and policies through manual configurations of network and security policy using slow, ticket-driven processes. This can lead to decisions to bypass corporate security policy, network operations, and other controls in favor of releasing code quickly.
The solution? Empower NetOps and SecOps to contribute security and network policies that integrate seamlessly into the automation pipeline used by dev teams to manage application development and deployment.
In this webinar and demo to find out how F5 can help you:
Increase CI/CD velocity by integrating application performance, corporate security, and compliance policies into the automation pipeline.
Provision a consistent set of services using whatever automation tools are already in your workflow.

Application developers have embraced containers and microservices for a variety of reasons, including portability, scalability, and increased efficiency of the development and deployment lifecycle. But scalability, security, automation, and performance of containerized applications is often insufficient. For example, application-layer attacks including hacks, bots, and data exfiltration are real threats to the integrity of your customer and operational data—and containers provide more points of entry.
Native services available within container platforms such as Kubernetes and Openshift lack robust features like web application firewalls and protocol gateways needed to secure and optimize enterprise applications. And in our fast-paced world, the reality is that faced with a choice between deployment velocity and security, speed-to-market often wins—despite the risk.
What’s the solution? Companies must deploy robust app security, availability, and performance services within container environments that integrate seamlessly with container management platforms and CI/CD pipelines.
At F5, we’ve developed a powerful application services platform that integrates with your container management solution to deliver robust application security and performance.
In this webinar we'll show you:
- The basics of containers and Kubernetes.
- How to apply advanced network services such as sophisticated load balancing and web application firewalls to container-based apps.
- How F5’s open-source Container Ingress Services create a bridge between container-based apps and your F5 BIG-IP

In today’s digital world, organizations compete on speed-to-market. As application development teams strive to roll out new services to customers faster, the networking team is pressured on keeping the pace with provisioning and configuration during the application delivery process. The traditional manual, and often “ticket based” approach struggles to handle the increasing demands and scale bottlenecking the modern application delivery lifecycle.
To accelerate this “last mile” process, F5 works with HashiCorp to provide a complete solution with an automated approach. With Terraform, the F5 platform can be treated “as code” and can be provisioned automatically along with the new service getting deployed. With Consul, any further changes to the back-end pool of F5 will get updated dynamically. As services scale up, down, or fail, the F5 will automatically reload the configuration and route traffic to available and healthy servers with zero downtime.
In this webinar, we will cover:
● F5 provider with Terraform to provision new service resources
● F5 with Consul service discovery integration to dynamically reconfigure back-end pool
