Automate, scale, and secure application workloads in hybrid environments
Public sector organizations must accelerate application delivery to keep pace with rapidly evolving mission requirements. Many are introducing DevOps and DevSecOps practices and deploying applications in hybrid environments to speed up development and delivery. Whether you deploy applications in public clouds, private clouds, or a combination of them, F5/NGINX application security and delivery solutions (identity and access management, web application firewalls, TCP optimization, etc.) can help you optimize the performance, security, and availability of your production workloads.
F5, the market leader in application delivery services, and Ansible, the market leader in automation, have partnered to help you increase service velocity and improve agility. The integrated solution lets you automate F5/NGINX deployment, provisioning, and configuration management tasks to streamline operations and accelerate the pace of change. Key features and benefits include:
- End-to-end automation from provisioning to application deployment.
- Faster configuration, greater consistency, and increased automation.
- No new software to install on your BIG-IP device.
- Prebuilt Ansible F5 modules for best practices and continuous compliance.
Just like Ansible Automation Platform helps you manage app workflows, NGINX Controller helps you manage your NGINX Plus instances in multiple environments, including Red Hat Enterprise Linux®. The Ansible Collection for NGINX Controller lets you add NGINX Controller into your regular workflows so your developers can automate common tasks including ephemeral API token generation, managing certificate life cycles, and configuration of controller objects (gateways, applications, and components).
