Editor's Notes

  • Brief History and High-Level Overview – Umbrella MS messageHistory, strategic relationship
  • The real-time nature of UC combined with the business critical status of the underlying software applications make reliability a high priority for IT departments implementing Microsoft’s Lync Server 2010. Provide Customer Example of these challenges and how they were solved with the Application Ready SolutionConsider Strategic and Operational challenges:
  • Increase performance, scale and availability throughIntelligent load-balancing of signaling trafficTCP optimizationSSL off-load for web trafficSession and site resilienceImprove security and ease of managementTemplate for auto-configuration of BIG-IPTLS-based SIP monitoriControl API and iRulesLeverage the ADC as a strategic data center control pointAvailabilityLeast connection method of LB (by node versus pool member)Multiple distinct TCP configuration modifications that improve application performance.Security and ManagementF5 believes that greater value is realized in enabling IT admins to manage health of application servers versus physical servers or IP nodes
  • Performance:Load-balance client connections into Consolidated Edge serversLoad-balance client connections into Consolidated Lync servers as well as Director poolsOff load SSL for web services regardless of Lync server role (web services and A/V are spread across servers versus having their own role in Lync 2010.SecuritySSL off-load (LTM can re-encrypt outbound traffic or pass-through entirely)TLS is a secure (encrypted protocol for encapsulating SIP traffic)ConfigurationBest in class deployment guideOCS policy built into v10 and later of LTM and will be updated in Spring 2011Only ADC vendor with an online user/dev community with forums, additional content, etcManagementIntelligent health monitoring of the application over and above just generic server response.Option to use the TLS monitor, giving a secure application layer health monitor for SIP serversF5 partners with Microsoft from solution design all the way through product support. Microsoft Premier support engineers are trained on BIG-IP and have devices in their troubleshooting labs so that F5 configuration does not need to be removed from the configuration in order to establish repro case. In addition, F5 support engineers work together with Microsoft support engineers to solve customer issues which provides additional assurance to the customer that an investment in both Microsoft and F5 is secure and trustworthy.
  • F5 Sizing guidance is in process (output is not a BIG-IP model number, this is guidance, not a calculator)Available when?
