Deploy faster in the cloud.

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.

F5 reduces the risk of moving applications to the cloud.

Bringing F5 application delivery services to the public cloud allows you to leverage the people, skills, and tools you rely on in your data center to ensure the security, availability, and performance of your applications. F5 accelerates the move to cloud, while minimizing risk and business impact.

The right tools for the right job.

You’ll also have access to an extensive range of cloud solution templates, available in the F5 GitHub repository. Deploy and configure services quickly and easily in your public cloud environment–at no additional cost.

Multiple application environments, one consistent experience.

Deploying BIG-IP Virtual Editions in the cloud

F5 solutions are built on the same platform across all implementations. That cohesion allows you to deliver consistent application experiences across public, private, and interconnection cloud services, as well as your existing data center.

Licensing models.

Flexible licensing models allow you to scale as you grow. Options vary by provider, but include:

  • Utility (pay-as-you-go)
    An hourly, daily, or monthly billing model to support temporal deployments like dev and test or for customers who prefer the OpEx model.

  • Bring Your Own License (BYOL)
    A portable software license that makes it easy to extend existing BIG-IP virtual edition investments to the cloud.

  • Subscriptions
    Offered as an annual agreement or through a Volume Licensing Subscription (VLS), which provides significant cost savings for BIG-IP virtual editions.
