Cloud Month on F5 DevCentral


The term ‘Cloud’ as in Cloud Computing has been around for a while. Some insist Western Union invented the phrase in the 1960s; others point to a 1994 AT&T ad for the PersonaLink Services; and still others argue it was Amazon in 2006 or Google a few years later. And Gartner had Cloud Computing at the top of their Hype Cycle in 2009.

No matter the birth year, Cloud Computing has become an integral part of an organization’s infrastructure and is not going away anytime soon. A 2017 SolarWinds IT Trends report says 95% of businesses have migrated critical applications to the cloud and F5's SOAD report notes that 20% of organizations will have over half their applications in the cloud this year. It is so critical that we’ve decided to dedicate the entire month of June to the Cloud.

We’ve planned a cool cloud encounter for you this month. We’re lucky to have many of F5’s Cloud experts offering their 'how-to' expertise with multiple 4-part series. The idea is to take you through a typical F5 deployment for various cloud vendors throughout the month. Mondays, we got Suzanne Selhorn & Thomas Stanley covering AWS; Wednesdays, Greg Coward will show how to deploy in Azure; Thursdays, Marty Scholes walks us through Google Cloud deployments including Kubernetes.

But wait, there’s more!

On Tuesdays, Hitesh Patel is doing a series on the F5 Cloud/Automation Architectures and how F5 plays in the Service Model, Deployment Model and Operational Model - no matter the cloud and on F5 Friday #Flashback starting tomorrow, we’re excited to have Lori MacVittie revisit some 2008 #F5Friday cloud articles to see if anything has changed a decade later. Hint: It has…mostly. In addition, I’ll offer my weekly take on the tasks & highlights that week.

Below is the calendar for DevCentral's Cloud Month and we’ll be lighting up the links as they get published so bookmark this page and visit daily! Incidentally, I wrote my first Cloud tagged article on DevCentral back in 2009. And if you missed it, Cloud Computing won the 2017 Preakness. Cloudy Skies Ahead!
