Global Traffic Manager Course Overview

Global Traffic Manager called as GTM system to manage effectively, you need to define the components that make up the segments of your network. These components include physical components, such as data centers and servers, as well as logical components, such as wide IPs,pools & addresses. By defining these components, you essentially build a network map that the Global Traffic Manager can use to direct Domain Name System (DNS) traffic to the best available resource.Most things you do on the Internet or Private networks start with name resolution – so it makes sense if you’re going to load balance an application it would start at this layer – resolving names to IPs based on availability, Performance, and even Persistence.

Objectives of F5 GTM Training

  • High-speed response and DDoS attack protection with in-memory DNS
  • Authoritative DNS replication in multiple BIG-IP or DNS service deployments for faster responses
  • Authoritative DNS and DNSSEC in virtual clouds for disaster recovery and fast,secure responses
  • Scalable DNS performance for quality of app and service experience
  • The ability to consolidate DNS servers and increase ROI

Intended Audience of F5 GTM Course

This course is intended for system and network administrators responsible for installation,setup,configuration,and administration of the BIG-IP GTM System

Prerequisites for GTM Certification

Participants should understand: Common Network terminology TCP/IP Addressing and Routing DNS Methodology Internetworking concepts Common elements of WAN(Wide Area Network) and LAN(Local Area Network) environments, Data Center Server redundancy concepts. In addition, students should be proficient with: Basic PC operation & application skills, including operating a CD drive, keyboard, mouse and Windows OS Basic Web Browser operation (Internet Explorer is used in class)
