  • State of Load Balancing 2020 Mar 12 2020 3:00 pm UTC 62 mins
    Nathan McMahon, Solution Architect at Avi Networks, part of VMware
    2019 has been an eventful year for load balancing. Avi Networks is acquired by VMware, who enters the application delivery controller (ADC) market with a software load balancer, web application firewall and container ingress solution. NGINX is 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
  • Design Best Practices for HA in Load Balancing with Avi Networks Mar 3 2020 6:00 pm UTC 49 mins
    Nathan McMahon, Solution Architect at Avi Networks, part of VMware
    Application availability is a critical function of load balancing but a pain to get it right. The reality is you don't get to test (or wish you don't have to activate) it too often. However, an HA system should deliver: faster failover with reasonable efficiency, autoscaling, session mirroring and self-healing resiliency. In this webinar, we re-introduce HA as an intertwined concept as well as some best practices - what if you can redesign HA with a modern load balancing platform?

    Here are some of the HA requirements to consider:

    - Architectural considerations for various HA options
    - Moving away from expensive Active / Standby load balancing pairs to an elastic Active / Active load balancing fabric
    - The importance to separate control plane and data plane HA- Four HA modes: legacy A/S, elastic A/A, elastic N+M, and elastic N+0
  • Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (EKS) Feb 25 2020 6:00 pm UTC 46 mins
    Bhushan Pai, Senior Technical Product Manager, VMware
    Applications built on microservices architecture have widely adopted container technology. To deploy container applications in production, application services such as load balancing, application security and analytics need to be modernized. Avi Networks integrates natively into Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (EKS) to help autoscale your applications in multi-cloud environments to meet growing demands.
  • Adopt Modern SSL so You Don’t Get Left Behind Recorded: Feb 11 2020 48 mins
    Nathan McMahon, Solution Architect at Avi Networks, part of VMware
    Radical changes in security have dramatic impact on load balancing. SSL/TLS is changing so rapidly that enterprises are forced to do a forklift upgrade of their hardware load balancers. However, with VMware Advanced Load Balancer by Avi Networks, it’s as simple as a version update.

    In this webinar, we catch you up the latest SSL facts.

    - SSL termination can be done with only software. And it has better security, scalability, and lower cost. That’s how Facebook and Google do it. Let’s see how.
    - RSA and Elliptic-curve cryptography (ECC) have different implications for perfect forward secrecy (PFS), HTTP/2 and TLS 1.3 support. Let’s compare.
    - SSL health score allows you to manage expiring certificates, automated certificate renewals, and notification alerts from a centralized control plane.
  • Top 10 iRules That You Can Migrate to a Modern Policy Platform Recorded: Feb 4 2020 36 mins
    Nathan McMahon, Solution Architect at Avi Networks, part of VMware
    With the advent of automation, iRules have become an artifact of the past. Especially when the most commonly deployed F5 iRules such as HTTP redirects, content switching, or logging, require custom scripting. It can be a huge pain for an IT team to train staff on convoluted syntax and manual conversions. Avi eliminates most iRules (#iRulesNoMore) – basic or advanced – with native point-and-click functionalities.

    Watch this webinar to learn:
    - How over 75% of F5 iRules can be accommodated by native point-and-click features
    - Top 10 iRules that can be migrated to native policies on the Advanced Load Balancer by Avi Networks
    - How advanced and custom use cases are easily configured with Avi’s DataScript

  • Delivering Applications with Full Lifecycle Automation in a Multi-Cloud World Recorded: Nov 12 2019 49 mins
    Chandra Sekar
    The ability to deliver applications consistently across hybrid and multi-cloud environments is becoming increasingly important for digital business. Network and infrastructure teams are turning to highly automated deployments to support aggressive application roll out schedules and CI/CD pipelines. In this webinar, we explore the foundation of decision automation and orchestration for load balancers and application services by asking:

    1. What is the difference between “decision automation” and “task scripting” for application delivery?
    2. How do you automate across heterogeneous networks with different constructs and capabilities?
    3. What is the architecture needed for application delivery to support day-0 operation?
    4. What is required for day-n+ to automate the full lifecycle of application services?
