Integrate F5 across your container environment.

F5 Container Connector easily integrates BIG-IP solutions with native container environments, such as Kubernetes and Mesos, and PaaS container orchestration and management systems, such as RedHat OpenShift, and Pivotal Cloud Foundry. It enables Ingress control HTTP routing and advanced application delivery performance, as well as security services for containerized deployments.

Apps that dynamically scale—whenever you need to.

Adoption of containerized environments is accelerating to facilitate faster app development. But these apps still need services, such as app routing, SSL offload, performance, and security.

That’s where Container Connecter comes in: enabling self-service app performance and security services within your orchestration by integrating BIG-IP platforms with your container environment. Now you can scale apps to meet container workloads and enable security services to protect container data.

Automated event discovery and app services insertion.

Container Connector enables you to deploy self-service Ingress control within container orchestration service scheduling. In addition, your teams subscribe to events to scale app services automatically using the BIG-IP advanced application performance and security services for Ingress control.

Deploy faster with integration across your container orchestration ecosystem.

Container Connecter simplifies policy management, resulting in faster app deployments. You can easily configure app-delivery and security services with pre-defined BIG-IP templates.
