Bring your own license (BYOL): In this scenario Exoscale provides the pure IaaS according to the Exoscale end user service agreements (EUSA).
In addition, an image of the virtual Application Delivery instance can be provisioned via the Exoscale add-ons portfolio.
Please note, that in this license case Exoscale cannot guarantee the vendor support for the virtual Application Delivery image. It is the responsibility of the customer to purchase a license and a software subscription.
For using F5 Application Delivery instances it is important to know that the licenses are based on the desired module/module bundle and the overall instance throughput.
Please see the bandwidth billing at Exoscale.
The customer needs to identify the necessary instance and take over the responsibility of sizing.
Due to technical restrictions on a platform level, the use of single NIC deployments as a deployment method is recommended and the only method which is supported from Exoscale support.
Using this deployment method, the instance is deployed with just a single network interface.
The operating system recognizes this setup and uses DHCP to configure the necessary settings on that interface. Administrators can access the management UI using the following address:
The multi NIC deployment method is technically possible but requires further architectural and design changes. Please consult A1 Digital Professional Services if you want to use the multi NIC deployment method.
For the initial configuration, the credentials for the root and admin users must be set at first login (see K10612010) at the CLI via the Exoscale console.
It is in the responsibility of the customer to protect administrative access (interface ports 22 and 8443) using security groups, so that only intended people can access it.
Administrators are allowed to upgrade instances by installing new base images or hotfixes at their own responsibility.
With the BYOL model the customer is fully responsible for service and support.
