28 people launched
Solution Overview
The nature in which applications are being built and deployed is in a state of change. Previously, monolithic applications were being converted into containerized microservices, leading to higher efficiency and flexibility of application resources. Now there is a new set of challenges around security, scalability and availability.

This lab will demonstrate how F5 Container Ingress Services, integrated with Red Hat OpenShift can provide security, scalability and availability of containerized applications in an enterprise environment.
