On July 1st, 2015, F5 released Device Package version 1.2.0 for Cisco ACI.  What is new in this device package?

PERSISTNACE PROFILE

We added persistence profiles (default and fallback) support in this device package.  Thru APIC, you can reference persistence profiles (default or custom built) reside in common partition.  F5 sees the referencing approach provides customers greater flexibility in managing profiles than configuring profiles within APIC -> you can modify the profiles parameters out-of-band.

FULL ADDRESS TRANSLATION SUPPORT

We also added full address translation capability to our device package 1.2.0.  You can now choose SNAT Pool / Automap / None options:

We also made feature enhancements on allowing customers to tune additional parameters:

  • Connection Mirroring (Enable / Disable)
  • Source Port (Change / Preserve / Preserve-Strict)
  • Port Lockdown (All / None / Default)

F5 continues to strive for improvements in our Cisco ACI integrations to meet customers demand in ACi service insertion environment.
