The cloud is transforming the way businesses deploy and manage applications. Smarter tools and limitless scale make it possible to improve agility, automate processes, and increase speed to market in ways traditional IT infrastructure can’t touch. Companies of all sizes, across all industries, are taking part in this digital evolution.
When it comes to application deployment, agility is king. Businesses need to move quickly, and public cloud infrastructure gives them the flexibility and scalability they need to stay competitive. However, the same security and compliance issues affecting traditional data centers are still very real concerns with cloud deployments. Public cloud providers guarantee the security of the infrastructure, but application owners are responsible for the security of their applications and data.
While most private clouds can handle basic load balancing natively, they do lack vital application delivery services, which can put the availability and security of applications at risk. Once you choose a private cloud platform, you must deliver the application security, availability, and performance your users expect. F5 provides specific solution packages that include the required app delivery and security services, integration into the cloud management and orchestration system, consulting, and enterprise support.
