F5 has been an AWS partner for a while, and recently announced some expansion in the parntership there including subscription billing for VE. Are there any forum members who are current users of F5 on AWS? Can you share your thoughts or feedback?
Attached is a couple slides from an F5 cloud sales deck that speak to the difference. There is no real canned response because there are too many variables in speeds and how much time will the pay as you go instance be up. What many find is they start with a pay as you go instance, learning about it and then hit a threshold of expense where bring your own license makes more sense. Hope this helps.
