We hosted a booth at the F5 Agility event in San Francisco. The event aptly suited our mission to deliver network agility for cloud service providers and enterprises.
We showcased nCloudX orchestration of F5 BIG-IP LTM (Local Traffic Manager) and GTM (Global Traffic Manager). Many F5 customers and partners were impressed with the integration and our support for L2-L7 multi-vendor infrastructure. They particularly liked that nCloudX orchestrates using the iControl API and supports both physical and virtual editions of BIG-IP.
You can watch a brief overview below:
A few of us attended the ‘Application Layer SDN’ session by Lori Macvittie, Sr. Product Manager at F5. Lori first explained the differences between SDN (Software Defined Networking) and NFV (Network Functions Virtualization). Then, she introduced Application Layer SDN use-cases and provided a brief overview of F5’s portfolio including BIG-IQ Cloud and Line Rate Proxy . Overall, it was a very valuable session.

Even though it was a short 2-day event, we met many prospective customers and partners. We look forward to participating in future F5 Agility events.
