F5 AWS CloudFormation templates

Slack Status Releases Issues


Welcome to the GitHub repository for F5's CloudFormation templates for deploying F5 in Amazon Web Services. All of the templates in this repository have been developed by F5 Networks engineers.

For information on getting started using F5's CFT templates on GitHub, see Amazon Web Services: Solutions 101 and the README files in each directory.

Across all branches in this repository, there are two directories: supported and experimental.

  • supported
    The supported directory contains CloudFormation templates that have been created and fully tested by F5 Networks. These templates are fully supported by F5, meaning you can get assistance if necessary from F5 Technical Support via your typical methods.

  • experimental
    The experimental directory also contains CloudFormation templates that have been created by F5 Networks. However, these templates have not completed full testing and are subject to change. F5 Networks does not offer technical support for templates in the experimental directory, so use these templates with caution.

Template information

Descriptions for each template are contained at the top of each template in the Description key. For additional information, including how the templates are generated, and assistance in deploying a template, see the README file on the individual template pages. Standalone and HA production stack templates have been deprecated; a new parameter has been added to existing-stack templates to control deployment of public IP addresses.

Matrix for tagged releases

F5 has created a matrix that contains all of the tagged releases of the F5 Cloud Formation Templates (CFTs) for Amazon AWS, and the corresponding BIG-IP versions, license types, and throughput levels available for a specific tagged release. See the AWS Matrix.

Quick Start

The quickstart template allows you to quickly launch an auto scale group of BIG-IP VEs into AWS to demonstrate a typical micro services use case and/or Blue and Green deployment strategy.

For detailed information, we recommend you first see the Quick Start README file

Or you can use the Launch Stack button to get started:
