Bournemouth University (BU) is located on the south coast of England. Their challenges are to replace software-based load balancers cost effectively, boost app performance and install a new high-capacity firewall and application layer security. They chose F5 Networks to overcome these challenges. They have implemented Application Delivery Controller (ADC), BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager (LTM), BIG-IP Advanced Firewall Manager (AFM), BIG-IP Access Policy Manager (APM) and BIGIP Application Security Manager (ASM) and VMware. The results of implementing F5 Networks were improved app availability and performance, ongoing cost savings and tighter IT security.
