Introducing the Edge 2.0 Architecture

Presented by

Bart Salaets, Sr Director Solutions Engineering, F5 | Nico Cartron, Sr. Solutions Engineer, Volterra (Now Part of F5)

About this talk

Delivering rich digital experiences to your clients requires a combination of multiple networks, clouds, CDNs, and edges that are manually stitched together. This creates a lot of operational complexity as each platform has a unique set of tools and services. In addition, having your applications distributed over a multitude of different platforms exposes new ways for attackers to exploit vulnerabilities. Current edge solutions do not provide the level of functionality or defence required by today’s digital enterprises. The market is ready for a shift – the shift to Edge 2.0. Join us for this session to learn how new platforms will allow you to build the edge architecture of the future. We will cover the following key aspects: • Security-first: Security must be a fundamental aspect of an edge platform, not just an add-on • App-driven: The needs of the apps must define the edge, rather than the apps fitting the constraints of the edge • Unlimited scalability: The edge must be software-defined and able to expand outside the boundaries of the edge provider, including public clouds and private data centers

At F5, our mission is based on the fact that businesses depend on apps. Our long-standing belief that applications are the most valuable assets of any organization in the digital age has been the foundation of our strategy to become the leader in multi-cloud application services. When you combine F5 and NGINX's expertise powering over half of the world's applications across all types of environments, with Shape's insight from mitigating 1 billion application attacks per day, you have a company that knows how to deliver and secure more applications, and more value, than any company in the industry. This means that we are able to deliver and protect applications—revenue generating, brand-anchoring applications—from the point at which they are created through to the point where consumers interact with them. In other words, from "code to customer."
