When we sat down to redesign DevCentral we had a couple of themes in mind Make the navigation simpler. Enable people to connect with other people.   I also had a few goals in mind while working on the new skin Design for cacheability The page should load as fast as possible The page should be as small as possible Should be able to extend the site easily   Over the next few days I’m going to write a series of posts explaining how the DevCentral team and I went abou...
Learn how F5's BIG-IP LTM/APM helps in conjunction with Oracle Access Manager centralizing web application authentication and authorization services, streamline access management, and reduce infrastructure costs Watch how BIG-IP APM can reduce TCO, lower deployment risk, and streamline operational efficiencies for customers along with having a unified point of enforcement to simplify auditing and control changes in configuring application access settings.
Watch how BIG-IP ASM v10.2 can prevent Cross-site request forgery.  Shlomi Narkolayev demonstrates how to accomplish a CSRF attack and then shows how BIG-IP ASM stops it in it's tracks. The configuration of CSRF protection is literally a checkbox.
While at Interop 2010 this week, we shot some videos and in this one, learn how F5's WAN Optimization can enhance Oracle's Data Guard solution. I talk with Chris Akker, Solution Engineer, about the challenges of real-time database sync and Zero Data Loss over a Wide Area Network.

There’s a growing focus on PaaS (Platform as a Service), particularly as Microsoft has been rolling out Azure and VMware continues to push forward with its SpringSource acquisition. Amazon, though generally labeled as IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) is also a “player” with its SimpleDB and SQS (Simple Queue Service) and more recently, its SNS (Simple Notification Service). But there’s also Force.com, the SaaS (Software as a Service) giant Salesforce.com’s incarnation of a “platform” as well a...

BIG-IP LTM and Live Meeting Portal Server I setup Live Meeting Portal Server in a production environment the other day and wanted to share a few things that are not mentioned in Microsoft’s documentation.  The BIG-IP portion of this configuration is super easy, but it is understanding how both the application and the BIG-IP work together that can be the hardest part of any deployment.  Prerequisites: Please consult the Live Meeting Portal Server documentation and ensure that your...
DevCentral has many rock star contributors.  Most are not affiliated officially with F5 Networks, or DevCentral for that matter, but there are several F5ers who believe in the community, and really believe in the F5 story.  One of those F5ers is Matt Cauthorn, or as you know him in the community, L4L7.  You may recognize Matt as the author of pyControl.  Well, not only did he provide this entrance to a better iControl experience, he has also delivered in a major way with his ...
Infrastructure can be a black box only if its knobs and buttons are accessible I spent hours at Interop yesterday listening to folks talk about “infrastructure.” It’s a hot topic, to be sure, especially as it relates to cloud computing. After all, it’s a keyword in “Infrastructure as a Service.” The problem is that when most of people say “infrastructure” it appears what they really mean is “server” and that just isn’t accurate. If you haven’t been a data center lately there is a whole lot of...
