Automating the vCloud API with F5

Posted on Thursday, September 23, 2010 | 3 Comments

Now that VMware vCloud Director is out in the wild we are going to see lots of clever use of the vCloud API.

An obvious and very natural use case is Cloud bursting which really shows the power of hybrid Cloud. F5 Networks have some great technologies to stitch all of this together.

Here is a video of using F5 technologies to burst in and out of the Cloud using the vCloud API. If your application can support this horizontal scaling, its a great use case.



  1. this is the technology that's behind it right? http://www.f5.com/pdf/white-papers/cloud-vmotion-f5-wp.pdf

    but there's more added to work with vCloud Director?

    the youtube video is very high level and fluffy. some of us need more techy detail to be satisfied. :)

  2. well looky here, i found it

  3. Hey Daniel, as you found its not the VMotion stuff but rather automating the vCloud API and using GTM and LTM to distribute load. You need an application thats going to be do this horizontal scaling though.
