TechEd2013 – Secure Windows Azure Access

I meet with F5 Solution Engineer Greg Coward to talk about and demo the BIG-IP IPsec integration with Windows Azure.  To support the number of organizations embracing the Windows Azure cloud platform, Microsoft has chosen to work with F5 on integrating complementary technologies. The integration enables BIG-IP solutions to better direct, monitor, and secure application resources according to an IT team’s traffic management preferences. BIG-IP LTM provides advanced IPsec tunneling capabilities between corporate data centers and multiple Windows Azure data centers.  This approach enhances access and security capabilities across separate resource environments, while enabling application services—such as optimization and health monitoring—to be seamlessly deployed as if all cloud and data center resources were connected by the same local networking fabric.
