The F5 and Cisco APIC integration based on the device package and iWorkflow is End Of Life. The latest integration is based on the Cisco AppCenter named ‘F5 ACI ServiceCenter’. Visit https://f5.com/cisco for updated information on the integration.
Tuesday June 16th marked the first of a kind with representatives of both Cisco and F5 jointly participating in a Live Developer Q&A – how far we’ve come since the days of rivalry to now, working as closely aligned allies.
For those who missed it, the format of the event involved taking questions from our respective developer communities–F5 DevCentral and Cisco DevNet–and presenting them to our panelists for discussion, debate and deliberation.
I, the humble moderator, had the pleasure of being accompanied by greatness in the forms of F5 Senior Principal Software Engineer, Alain Roy, and Cisco Director of Technical Marketing, Ranga Rao. In addition to the panelists we had F5’s Chase Abbot and Cisco’s Harry Petty, both industry veterans and fast typists, tending to the live chat session to answer additional questions real-time.
A small sample of the questions answered included:
What is F5 Synthesis?
Does ACI have the capacity to support ALL F5 modules?
What are the recommended software releases for BIG-IP and APIC to integrate?
What is the recommended best practices for deployment?
…and MANY more.
There’s already a great deal of resources available on the integration and, as promised during the event, you can find those resources here:
