F5 hybrid cloud
freedom without complexity

Maximise opportunities today and tomorrow

Businesses of all sizes are moving to the cloud. Unlimited scale, agility and speed to market can transform how organisations manage and deploy apps. But whilst public cloud can deliver scale, flexibility, and stretch budgets further, there are still workloads that might be more suited to private cloud or on-premise.

Research from IDC suggests that more than 85% of enterprise IT organisations will commit to multi-cloud architectures by 2018. But while a hybrid infrastructure can offer flexibility and costs benefits, it also brings it’s challenges. How to manage and secure applications across environments? How to control costs and customer experience? With F5 it’s possible to mitigate those challenges. F5 products and technologies give you the freedom to deploy any application, anywhere and ensure consistent services and security in any environment.

Are your business needs changing and do you need the flexibility to develop new products and get to market fast?

A hybrid cloud model can offer the flexibility you need to scale up when needed, and a private environment lets you test new software without radically changing infrastructure.

Do you have limited budget and growing requirements?

By offloading some of the non-essential tasks to the cloud you can dedicate on-premise resource to handling the most important taks.

Do you need high performance, low latency connections for certain functions?

Some functions are better suited to on premise or private cloud, whilst some functions can be moved to a more cost effective public cloud without any reduction in service.

Do you have apps that require a high degree of availability?

No matter which public cloud service provider you choose, they’ll have downtime. But by having some functions onsite you can protect yourself from failures.

Do you store confidential personal information?

Private or confidential information can be stored on premise or on private cloud whilst still using the public cloud to run apps.

It’s estimated that there are over 1 billion web apps today, and by 2020 this could easily be 5 billion. The data that drives these apps is a huge draw for malicious attacks. Securing applications can be fraught with complexity and as internet encryption (SSL/TLS ), mobile devices, and Internet of Things (IoT) grow, risks are only increasing.

With decades devoted to connecting users and applications, F5 solutions provide unparalleled visibility into hidden threats and offer the controls needed to manage access and reduce the risks of app attacks. The solutions also support security for any infrastructure, from traditional data centres to cloud environments meaning that users can securely access data on any device, in any environment, at any time.

F5’s products, technologies, and solutions work together to make sure your applications are always protected and work the way they should. Through the BIG-IP platform you can be assured of the same security, performance, and availability for your applications in the cloud that IT has relied on in the data centre, across multiple environments.

As the threats to apps and data continue, BIG-IP Application Security Manager (ASM) is a powerful WAF that enables you to defeat sophisticated and complex threats while also improving app performance by offloading SSL.
