#iapp #iControl #orchestration In the past few years there has been a lot of talk about dynamic data centers, automation, orchestration, etc. iApp has a very large benefit in these environments that might not be completely obvious. Last week I met with a customer who was responsible hosting managed applications and support services for their enterprise customers. To implement configuration they built a provisioning system to automate infrastructure and application services based on the ...
Last week we held our launch event for the EMEA International Technology Center in London. It was a two day event in which we hosted seventy customers the first day and fifty partners the second. We gave facilities tours, explained our services, the goals of the facility and we also got a chance to show off some of F5’s new and innovative technologies. Of course one technology we highlighted was iApp. The feedback was terrific and the results speak for themselves……in just the first 24hrs we have...
#iApp #v11 Time for some customer evidence! Last week F5 hosted our International Sales Conference. The whole company is invited to the general session at which our senior execs talk about the year in review and our vision for the future. iApp was discussed multiple times, but my favorite part was during the Product Development demonstration that showed how in just a few easy steps our device was configured to accelerate, secure and provide availability for an application. The whole thing took ...
#iApp #v11Next up in the iApp series is customization. In v11, F5 has delivered over twenty pre-defined iApp templates for mission critical applications, including many from top enterprise application providers such as Microsoft and Oracle. Our templates accommodate multiple use cases and application architectures, however if users want to they can easily use these templates as a basis to build their own to fit their unique needs. For example, a user can change the server name in for iApp temp...
Michael Earnhart is a PME on our new technology research (NTR) team. While he isn’t one of the ninja’s who lives in the dark and wears black, he certainly falls into the “always up for a debate” category. And he is good at tirelessly coming up with new ideas for our technology. Michael’s, “How to use an iApp template to build and manage iRules” is certainly a diamond in the rough. By providing the tools and guidance, he has put together something that offers users a way to use an iApp to quickl...
#devops #v11 #iapp Let’s spend some time talking about how iApp templates aren’t just for deploying and managing applications. Huh? The value of iApp templates extends far beyond applications. Remember, a template is used to describe the user interface and how the system will act on information gathered from the user, so practically any service, operational task or application can be delivered through this method. For instance, BIG-IPs are commonly used to provide high availability, scalabili...
#devops #iApps #v11 Traffic flow diagrams, worksheets, checkpoints, next steps, oh my! F5 was first in the industry to offer our customers deployment guidance for mission critical applications based on vendor best practices, and we have continued to do so for nearly a decade. To complement our iApp templates, we have been busy updating these deployment guides to provide users with more detailed solution information to help them succeed in planning, troubleshooting and deploying their applicatio...

#devops The EMEA International Technology Center is now open! I know it doesn’t apply, but the song is stuck in my head, so I got to get it out. Come on; sing along, “There she is, Miss America. There she is, your ideal.” Now doesn’t that feel better? Ok well, maybe not, but it was worth a try and the shock of folks sitting around me. AND the winner is........this beauty, F5’s newest International Technology Center (or Centre if you are in region) in the heart of London! She debuted Monday and...
iApp certainly can do a lot for an organization by allowing them to optimize their network in a matter of minutes, but they also provide full application lifecycle management as well. The user can make changes to their configuration simply by opening the application service instance previously created by the iApp template and make the necessary edits. The user interface is exactly the same as they used to originally deploy the application. Why is that so important? Context. ADCs are part of t...
So let’s start today by looking at some of the key features of iApp using the F5 Exchange 2010 template as an example. A user would select a template they wished to use from a drop down field in the user interface. Once selected, they will be presented with the questions and input fields defined by the iApp author. It looks like this…… F5-provided iApp templates all have key features that help bridge that IT knowledge gap I spoke about previously. Goal-based configuration - Goal-based qu...
