  12. BIG-IP Virtual Edition ESX v4, ESXi v4 • Available as a trial, developer or production editions • Runs on any server compatible with ESX • Managed just like a physical LTM • Same functionality.

  13. It Starts with Local Traffic ManagementEnsure availability and plan for growth Dynamic LB Methods LTM load balances at the application level • Ensures the best resources are always selected • Has deep visibility into application health • Proactively inspects and responds to errors Application Health Monitoring High Performance Hardware Session Persistence TransactionAssurance Eliminate downtime and scale the application

  14. Secure the Applications and Data Network and Protocol Attack Prevention Resource Cloaking and Content Security Security at Application, Protocol and Network Level • Meet compliance requirements (PCI, HIPAA, etc.) • Strong protection without interrupting legitimate traffic Application Security Manager Access Policy Manager (add-on modules) Selective Encryption “BIG-IP enabled us to improve security instead of having to invest time and money to develop a new more secure application” TechValidate 0C0-126-2FB Application Manger Global 5000 Media and Entertainment Company

  15. Let Servers Serve LTM offloads tasks from application servers • Reduce the number of servers required • Centralized SSL key management One Connect Fast Cache SSL Offload Compression 1/2 of BIG-IP owners have saved 20% or more on their total Capital Expenses with BIG-IP Source: TechValidate Survey of F5 BIG-IP Users

  16. OneConnect ™ – Connection Pooling • Increase server capacity by 30% • Aggregates massive number of client requests into fewer server side connections • Transformations from HTTP 1.0 to 1.1 for Server Connection Consolidation • Maintains Intelligent load balancing to dedicated content servers Good Sources: http://tech.f5.com/home/bigip/solutions/traffic/sol1548.html http://www.f5.com/solutions/archives/whitepapers/httpbigip.html

  23. F5 and VMware

  24. VMware & F5 Market Leaders

  25. Recent Highlights • F5 named Global Technology Innovator Partner of the Year • VMware awards highest honor to F5 at 2011 Partner Exchange • Recognition for deep integration and solution development • “VMware-Ready” certifications • BIG-IP Virtual Edition • Recent Releases • View desktop solution (Edge Gateway and APM for LTM VE) • vCloud Director – joint cloud bursting solution • Management Plug-in for vSphere

  26. Common Practical Issues • How can I provision more seamlessly? • How can I make application performance better? • How can I automate more administrative tasks? • How can I simplify network configuration for VMs? • How can I take full advantage of VMotion? • How can I secure my virtual desktop deployments? • How can I streamline virtual desktop access steps?

  27. Server Virtualization & F5

  28. Improving VM Density Offload Typical virtualized server Same server with BIG-IP • SSL • Caching • Compression • One Connect • TCP Optimization

  29. Automating Network Changes: vCenter • BIG-IP LTM & VMware vCenter can be integrated for automatic provisioning of local VMs on demand • Respond to changes in traffic volume • Provision to mean rather than peak • Reduce manual labor

  31. Automating Network Changes: SRM • BIG-IP GTM & VMware SRM integrated to enable failover between sites • GTM makes traffic follow SRM failover • Automatic • Minimize Application Downtime

  32. Automating Network Changes:Inter-Data Center Traffic Management • Serving an application across multiple data centers • Cloud Bursting • Automated Failover • Global Traffic Optimization • Intelligent Persistence • Federated Cloud Authentication • Control via • iControl API • Pre-defined global traffic policies • iRules BIG-IP Global Traffic Manager vCenter-2 vCenter-1

  33. Illustration: GTM & SRM Integration SRM Failover Ongoing Replication Site 1 Site 2 • GTM Health checks reveal unhealthy site 1. • GTM self-executes a redirection to site 2.

  34. F5 Management Plug-In for vSphere

  35. F5 Management Plug-In for vSphere • Free Software Plug-In for VMware vSphere • Attaches to vCenter Server – modifies vSphere Client GUI • Operates with both physical and virtual LTM editions • Streamlines the administrative steps of adding VM nodes from load balancing pools • Automates actions based on pre-defined policies • Reduces risk of error • Reduces manual effort • Officially supported by F5 (in it’s unmodified state)

  36. vSphere Client GUI

  37. Example: Right-Click VMand disable VM via BIG-IP

  38. Long Distance VMotionDetailed Review

  39. Escaping Boundaries Between DCsNew Use Cases for Well Established Functionality • Migration • Disaster avoidance • Capacity expansion • Key Technical Problems Solved: • Performance problems caused by latency or bandwidth • Network retransmission of client traffic from site 1 to site 2 • Loss of app sessions when migrating to another location

  40. How it works – the fundamental steps • Storage VMotion to Site 2 • VMotion to Site 2 • LTM routes incoming connections for existing sessions to Site 2 VM • GTM routes new connections to Site 2 • Register host and VM in vCenter Site 2 (optional)

  41. Logical representation, not physical Internet EtherIP Tunnel EtherIP Tunnel vCenter Server

  42. Acceleration & Encryption • F5 testing results of common bandwidth/latency combinations • iSessions™ or WAN Optimization Module™ (WOM) • SSL encryption • Acceleration: TCP Optimization, Deduplication, Compression • Able to successfully VMotion in conditions where previously failed
