  • 1. F5 Networks: VMworld 2011
    August 2011
  • 2. Announcement Highlights
    F5 adds to its portfolio for VMware solutions
    Metro vMotion with VMware vSphere 5 and EMC VPLEX Metro
    iApps for VMware View with BIG-IP v11
    Single Namespace solution for VMware View
  • 3. Metro vMotion
    Solution history
    F5 1st company to do long distance live migration in concert with vMotion
    BIG-IP v10 enabled significant performance improvements
    Customer challenge
    Disaster avoidance or disaster recovery, data center maintenance, capacity planning
    Migration of live virtual machines between data centers
    Previously (vSphere 4.x or older) only migration between data centers based on 5 ms max, stretched L2 network
    Migration of large amount of associated storage challenging
  • 4. Metro vMotion
    Alternative approaches
    Migrate only short distances (5 ms) over stretched L2 network
    Don’t migrate between data centers
    F5 solution
    F5 GTM, LTM, and WOM provide accelerated, global connectivity to ensure live migration at higher latencies
    EMC VPLEX Metro provides synchronous active/active data replication (eliminating need for Storage vMotion event)
    vSphere 5 adding support for inter-data center vMotion events (up to 10 ms)
  • 5. F5 iApps Overview
  • 6. BIG-IP v11: F5 iApps Revolution
    Optimizing the network for specific applications takes weeks and can be frustrating
    F5’s unique application deployment guides helped–now just days
    F5’s new iApps capability reduces process to hours and minutes and it’s portable like virtual machines
  • 7. BIG-IP v11: F5 iApps Revolution
    • Framework to unify, simplify, and control Application Delivery Services
    • 8. Application-centric
    • 9. Contextual view and advanced analytics
    • 10. Rapid and predictable deployment 
  • F5 iApps: How it works
    iApps templates allow for business policy-driven configuration and IT collaboration
    iApps drives automation and provisioning
    Changes can quickly be made and re-applied
    iApps are portable between F5 devices enabling rapid migration
    Every service is reusable
  • 11. iApps for VMware View
    Customer challenge
    Implementation and configuration of network centric settings
    Manual configuration time consuming and prone to mistakes
    Changes difficult to manage across multi data center
    Alternative approaches
    Homegrown scripts
    Manual configuration
  • 12. iApps for VMware View
    F5 solution
    BIG-IPv11 provides iApps framework for rapid deployment of application centric environments
    iApps for VMware View implements F5 Deployment Guide
    Configuration takes minutes instead of hours
    Errors are minimized/eliminated
    Changes easily be replicated across multiple data centers
  • 13. Single Namespace for VMware View
    Customer challenge
    Connecting end users to preferred data center location
    Based on geographical location (lowest latency)
    Based on business unit or customer
    Alternative approaches
    Manual configuration and maintenance of multiple namespaces
  • 14. Single Namespace for VMware View
    F5 solution
    F5 GTM, LTM, and APM work in concert to provide a Single Namespace solution for VMware View
    For example, https://mydesktop.example.com
    Users automatically connected to the preferred data center
    Authentication and Authorization policies automatically applied
    No manual configuration of multiple namespaces
  • 15. Summary
    F5 continues technology leadership with VMware solutions
    Server, application, and desktop virtualization
    Cloud computing (private, hybrid, and public)
    F5 offers best-of-breed innovation
    Security, access, automation, and traffic management
