Cisco ACI and F5 BIG-IP Design Guide

May 12, 2022

Cisco ACI and F5 BIG-IP Design Guide
The document discusses load balancer design considerations and deployment options in Cisco ACI, specifically  with F5 BIG-IP from three aspects: network design, F5 design, and multi-tenant design. This document covers features up to Cisco ACI Release 5.2. One of the key considerations of the network design with load balancer is to ensure incoming and return traffic go through the same load balancer (one exception is direct server return (DSR), which doesn't have this requirement). There are various options you can use to insert the load balancer. One way is to use the load balancer as a gateway for servers or as a routing next hop for routing instances. Another option is to use Source Network Address Translation (SNAT) on the load balancer or use ACI Policy-Based Redirect (PBR) to make the return traffic go back to the load balancer.
