F5: Managing Applications In vSphere Environments

Seattle-based F5 this week started offering its BIG-IP Management Plug-In for VMware vSphere, a free software add-on to the VMware vSphere management console for simplifying common BIG-IP LTM (Local Traffic Manager) administrative tasks in a vSphere environment. The F5 plug-in helps companies ensure that their BIG-IP LTM appliances, which provide application security, performance and delivery, are synchronized with changes to their VMware vSphere environments. BIG-IP Management Plug-In for VMware vSphere applies existing BIG-IP traffic management policies to newly provisioned virtual machines and maintains synchronization using flexible filters to select and associate virtual machines with the correct BIG-IP LTM traffic management policies.
