We have been using F5 on IBM WebSphere for a while now and it has increased the Security, Performance, and High Availability of our WebSphere servers.
Only the Cloud/Server admin team is currently working on F5 & IBM in our organization to provide a Demo to our clients and help them implement it further into their architecture.
Also, due to the integration between IBM and F5, we have noticed that our Network architecture has been very much simplified, and gets easy for us as the Admin and the customers as Users to manage the Network of WebSphere servers which traditionally was a huge challenge for us.
  • Application, Database and Network level security.
  • Simplifies Network Architecture, which in turn reduces the Bandwidth usage and saves cost.
  • Boosts the performance of the WebSphere applications with scalability and high availability.
  • The integration once done cannot be tweaked and need to be reconfigured from fresh in case any changes are needed into the configuration of F5 on IBM WebShpere.
  • Inadequate documentation and slow support.
  • Deployment Integration could be simplified a little or could be provided with good SOPs.
1. The Global DNS feature is awesome as the records propagate faster as compared to normal DNS servers configured on a Windows/Linux servers.
2. Load Balancing feature enables High Availability and improves the performance of Applications.
3. Web Application Firewall improves Security and makes applications reliable and secure.
4. The Dashboard GUI could be improved for non-tech savvy people.
