Application Optimization

All web applications can benefit from optimization of some kind. We can help you to optimize your application deployments using the F5 BIG-IP LTM, DNS (formerly GTM), and customized automation.

BIG-IP LTM and DNS Optimization

A prime candidate for application optimization is your Microsoft Exchange deployments.  We have optimized MS Exchange for many organizations running hundreds of thousands of mailboxes within and across their datacenters. We can provide granular tuning of parameters to ensure flawless email delivery.  If you’re running existing versions of Exchange, or deploying Exchange for the first time, we can configure your BIP-IP LTM to optimize your Client Access Servers (CAS).  Using F5 iApp or manual configuration for Outlook Web Access (OWA), Exchange Web Services (EWS), Outlook Anywhere (OA), Outlook Offline Address Book (OAB), NGNX can configure load balancing to distribute your user requests across multiple instances of your CAS servers, offload SSL, and perform web caching and compression of your user requests.

Our team also has vast development experience with iRule and iRuleLX programming to meet any of your custom application optimization needs, using iRule TCL and Node.js programming. We also have experience in large-scale DNS environments. The BIG-IP DNS is an intelligent DNS server, capable of handling upwards of 1.5 million queries per second, making it a very attractive solution to mitigate against DNS Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks.

NGNX can assist you in deploying BIG-IP DNS to

  1. Dynamically distribute user’s DNS requests across your multiple Data Centers or cloud locations using BIG-IP WideIPs. NGNX can provision granular DNS routing policies on your BIG-IP DNS to decide which site to send requests to base on requirements. We can also migrate your legacy BIG-IP GTM or other ADC vendor technologies to the new BIG-IP DNS. We can configure BIG-IP DNS and LTMs on the same device/VE or separately, using iQuery or application health checks to determine your application statuses.
  2. Migrate your static DNS zone files to the BIG-IP DNS. If you’re currently running legacy DNS servers such as Microsoft DNS, you can engage Just ADC to stage your zone files and migrate your DNS requests by delegating your domains to the BIG-IP DNS.

BIG-IP LTM and DNS Migrations

1. VIP Address Migrations

By placing your new BIG-IPs in the same Layer 2 VLAN, we can convert and stage new configurations by re-using existing VIP addresses. We then migrate VIPs during a scheduled maintenance window, by disabling your legacy VIPs and enabling them on the new platform.

2. DNS alias or WideIPs member update Migrations

NGNX can scan your zone files and identify aliases associated with your BIG-IP DNS WideIPs for the purpose of incrementally migrating your applications one at a time, from one platform to the other.
