Configuring F5 devices to deliver large enterprise applications is not trivial. You have to set up nodes, monitors, and profiles, deploy virtual IP addresses, and more. It’s all very complex, but configuration management makes it easier.
Puppet Enterprise lets you automate both configuration and management of your F5 load balancers with the same language you use to manage compute infrastructure. Now you can eliminate those time-consuming handoffs between system and networking teams, and speed application delivery.
Puppet Enterprise gives you centralized management of your compute and networking infrastructure. You define your infrastructure as code with a simple, human-readable language, and manage all your resources — compute, networking and storage — with a single management interface. Now all your technical teams can collaborate easily, and you can deliver applications faster.
Ease the complexity of migrating your applications to the cloud. Puppet Enterprise lets you define the desired configuration of your F5 BIG-IP devices once, and then deploy again and again, both on prem and in the cloud. Your deployments are not only repeatable, they’re consistent across your hybrid cloud infrastructure.
Automating the configuration and deployment of your applications with code lets your team adopt DevOps practices. You define your infrastructure as code, and that code can be reviewed, tested and approved. By applying agile development best practices to your infrastructure code, you get faster and more reliable deployments.
