This is the sequel to a two-part session. The automation and flexibility of the public cloud are important for digital business. In the aftermath of significant workplace disruption caused by the pandemic to the process of setting up and operating networks and deploying new applications, enterprises are looking for the same agility in their private clouds. How can IT respond to the pressure from their internal customers to deliver applications, with resilience, Day 0-N automation, and consistent services in any cloud. Hear from VMware customers and product experts who are addressing these challenges and transforming their networks to simplify operations, save costs, and deliver that “one-click” experience to application teams.
In this session, we will explore the modern load balancing architecture that brings the simplicity of the public cloud to application delivery in any environment.
The process of endless tickets to deploy an application is unsustainable. The largest banks, with hundreds of thousands of applications, have moved to a zero touch networking model. Deploy an app, and all the adjacent services, such as load balancing, application firewall, DNS and SSL cryptography are automatically instantiated. What does it take to make this happen? What impact will this have on your environment? In this session learn how the 3rd generation of application delivery enables self-service and automation to reduce time to market and operational costs.
From the public cloud, to the data center, and to the edge, enterprises are rethinking their networking and security strategies, priorities, technologies, and investment decisions to handle the unexpected. Traditional networks and security models have proved to be too rigid and have become blockers to address changes rapidly. The public cloud has quickly become the model to deliver this agility.
In this talk, we will examine networking and security technologies that are designed to operate with the network-as-code model of the public cloud and bring that flexibility to the private cloud. Enterprises are building and managing full stack networks with broad and deep visibility today and deploying security policies rapidly without any hardware dependencies.
In part one of this two-part session, we will discuss the networking and security aspects followed by part two which will cover application load balancing and application delivery services.

2019 was an eventful year for load balancing. Avi Networks was acquired by VMware, who entered the application delivery controller (ADC) market with a software load balancer, web application firewall and container ingress solution. NGINX was acquired by F5 Networks, hoping to tap into the developer communities. We continue to see the rise of multi-cloud and microservices as the leading drivers behind changes in modern load balancing solutions.
In this webinar, we explore three technology areas:
1. A new perspective on “service chain” – how it helps integrate adjacent technologies with APIs to form a self-service portal
2. Implications of HTTP3 on the future – why it is interesting to the load balancing industry in particular
3. An early prediction on DNS over HTTPS (DoH) – why it can enhance the security, scale and resiliency of the internet
