Cloud Landing Zone with F5: 3-Week POC

Trace3, LLC

Utilize a customized Azure Landing Zone solution by Trace3 and offer expert support to mitigate the perceived complexities and educate on multi-cloud F5 adoption strategies.

Choosing the right environment - a specific public cloud, edge location, or on-premises data center - for each application is important to best serve the needs of the business. However, that flexibility comes at a high price: an exponentially expanding surface area for potential cyberattacks, loss of end-to-end visibility into the health and performance of digital services, and significantly increased operational complexity and cost.

Trace3 and F5 have a shared vision of transforming traditional network deployment models into a flexible platform that delivers optimized performance, visibility, and security for all applications and APIs across diverse and distributed networks. Trace3’s Cloud Solutions team validated best practices and templates for the design, implementation, and support of F5’s market-leading products on the Microsoft Azure platform. The solution is based on Microsoft Azure Enterprise Scale Landing Zone (ESLZ) architecture which serves as the foundation for a Well-Architected Framework design, supplemented with the automated deployment of F5’s BIG-IP appliances in the Microsoft Azure Landing Zone. The solution can also be optioned with zero-trust focused advanced security, logging, and monitoring.
