Check out the F5 LB Provider for SCVMM 2012!

Hi Everyone!


System Center 2012 RC has been announced! Now that Microsoft has officially opened the launch window for System Center 2012, we would like to hear about your experience with the F5 Load Balancer provider for System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) 2012.


Our provider installs on a VMM server, enabling users to:


  1. Include basic load-balancing services as part of a VMM application service template within a private cloud


  2. Delegate these services to appropriate IT personell so that they can be included in an application service deployment


  3. Specify the min-max range of nodes allowed within a load-balancing pool


  4. Test connectivity and provider interfaces before launching a VM creation task


  5. Automatically configure BIG-IP to provide load-balancing to specified VMs when they are deployed.


If this capability sounds interesting to you, please try it out and reply to this post to let us know what you think.


Thank you!
