Lightboard Lessons: What is BIG-IP?

Posted in security, f5, big-ip, silva, video, application delivery, lightboard, devcentral by psilva on May 10th, 2017

In the early days of F5, BIG/IP was our original load balancer. Today, BIG-IP is a family of products covering software and hardware designed around application availability, access control, and security solutions.

In this Lightboard Lesson, Peter Silva lights up the various BIG-IP modules and what they do.

Lightboard Lessons: The BIG-IP Profiles

Posted in Uncategorized, f5, big-ip, application delivery, lightboard, devcentral by psilva on April 19th, 2017

BIG-IP can manage application-specific network traffic in a variety of ways, depending on the protocols and services being used. On BIG-IP, Profiles are a set of tools that you can use to intelligently control the behavior of that traffic.

In this Lightboard Lesson, I light up the BIG-IP Profiles. What they are, what they do and why you should care.

Lightboard Lessons: Service Consolidation on BIG-IP

Posted in f5, adc, silva, application delivery, lightboard, devcentral, infrastructure, consolidate by psilva on March 29th, 2017

The Consolidation of point devices and services in your datacenter or cloud can help with cost, complexity, efficiency, management, provisioning and troubleshooting your infrastructure and systems.

In this Lightboard Lesson, I light up many of the services you can consolidate on BIG-IP.

Lightboard Lessons: What is a Proxy?

Posted in security, f5, big-ip, silva, application delivery, lightboard, devcentral, proxy by psilva on March 15th, 2017

The term ‘Proxy’ is a contraction that comes from the middle English word procuracy, a legal term meaning to act on behalf of another.

In networking and web traffic, a proxy is a device or server that acts on behalf of other devices. It sits between two entities and performs a service. Proxies are hardware or software solutions that sit between the client and the server and do something to requests and sometimes responses.

In this Lightboard Lesson, I light up the various types of proxies.

Lightboard Lessons: IoT on BIG-IP

Posted in f5, big-ip, lightboard, devcentral, mqtt, iot, sensors by psilva on February 8th, 2017

As more organizations deploy IoT applications in their data centers and clouds, they're going to need their ADC to understand the unique protocols these devices use to communicate.

In this Lightboard Lesson, I light up how IoT protocol MQTT (Message Queuing Telemetry Transport) works on BIG-IP v13. iRules allow you to do Topic based load balancing along with sensor authentication. And if you missed it, here is the #LBL on What is MQTT?

Lightboard Lessons: What is MQTT?

Posted in f5, big-ip, lightboard, devcentral, infrastructure, mqtt, m2m, iot, sensors by psilva on January 11th, 2017

The mad dash to connect virtually every noun to the internet or The Internet of Things, is creating a massive M2M network for all the devices, systems, sensors and actuators to connect & communicate on the Internet.

With that, they need a communications protocol to understand each other. One of those is Message Queue Telemetry Transport (MQTT). MQTT is a “subscribe and publish” messaging protocol designed for lightweight machine-to-machine (or IoT) communications.

In this episode of Lightboard Lessons, I light up how MQTT works.

Lightboard Lessons: SSO to Legacy Web Applications

IT organizations have a simple goal: make it easy for workers to access all their work applications from any device. But that simple goal becomes complicated when new apps and old, legacy applications do not authenticate in the same way.

In this Lightboard Lesson, I draw out how VMware and F5 helps remove these complexities and enable productive, any-device app access. By enabling secure SSO to Kerberos constrained delegation (KCD) and header-based authentication apps, VMware Workspace ONE and F5 BIG-IP APM help workers securely access all the apps they need—mobile, cloud and legacy—on any device anywhere.

Lightboard Lessons: BIG-IP in Hybrid Environments

Posted in security, f5, big-ip, ssl vpn, cloud, silva, application delivery, lightboard, devcentral, remote access, saml, aws, azure, saas by psilva on October 12th, 2016

A hybrid infrastructure allows organizations to distribute their applications when it makes sense and provide global fault tolerance to the system overall. Depending on how an organization’s disaster recovery infrastructure is designed, this can be an active site, a hot-standby, some leased hosting space, a cloud provider or some other contained compute location. As soon as that server, application, or even location starts to have trouble, organizations can seamlessly maneuver around the issue and continue to deliver their applications.

Driven by applications and workloads, a hybrid environment is a technology strategy to integrate the mix of on premise and off-premise data compute resources. In this Lightboard Lesson, I explain how BIG-IP can help facilitate hybrid infrastructures.

Lightboard Lessons: Secure & Optimize VDI

Posted in security, big-ip, virtualization, silva, vmware, lightboard, vdi, devcentral, access by psilva on September 28th, 2016

Virtualization continues to impact the enterprise and how IT delivers services to meet business needs. Desktop Virtualization (VDI) offers employees anywhere, anytime, flexible access to their desktops whether they are at home, on the road, in the office or on a mobile device. In this edition of Lightboard Lessons, I show how BIG-IP can secure, optimize and consolidate your VMware Horizon View environment, providing a secure front end access layer for VMware’s VDI infrastructure.

Lightboard Lessons: DNS Scalability & Security

Posted in security, f5, big-ip, silva, video, dnssec, lightboard, devcentral, dns by psilva on September 21st, 2016

The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup, loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries.

DNS lookups has exploded in recent years with mobile, IoT and the applications to support the growth. It is also a vulnerable target. In my first Lightboard Lesson, I show you how to scale, secure and consolidate your DNS infrastructure.
