Increased globalization and distributed enterprise architecture urge and boost enterprises to stay connected with other business groups and partners, with high-level of security. In such scenario, organizations look for networks providers that have the ability to deliver business-critical applications faster, enhance performances while strengthening their IT infrastructure top to bottom. F5 Networks, a leader in Application Delivery Networking (ADN), brings in expertise in offering highly programmable products that can integrate into any data environment, which unifies technologies and aligns business needs. “With F5’s dedicated and passionate team of employees, we further our mission to help clients deliver the most secure, fast and reliable applications to anyone, anywhere, at any time,” says John McAdam, CEO of F5 Networks.

With the increasing trend of big data and analytics, organizations demand more effective cloud managed services in the market to get more and more comfortable with the concepts of the cloud. To boost the efficiency of services, F5 partnered with HPE offers networking solutions, software solutions and technology service solutions to multiple industries. The company gives additional flexibility and widens the availability of the HPE Networking applications that IT departments trust— helping companies align IT functions to constantly changing business demand.

Organizations need to extend networks to accommodate growth (including data growth), but managing broad networks with a range of applications can quickly drive up IT costs. In its scope, F5 solution integrates with the proven HPE Reference Architecture resulting in a compatible solution that not only improves network functionality but also simplifies IT management and application responsiveness through Intelligent Management Center (IMC), saving big. Moreover, the partnership provides strategic points of control in the data center to ensure data availability, accelerate applications, and provide additive security.

We believe there are several emerging market conditions that are driving an increased appeal of our products with our customers

Investing time, revenue, and personal resources while adapting to new (or) divergent architecture solution may stratify an IT environment and bring hindrance to successful migration to an adaptive network infrastructure. To deliver timely, innovative solutions, F5 Application Delivery Controllers (ADC) provide strategic points of control in the data center that combines with HPE suite of products and technologies to simplify deployment and ongoing maintenance, reducing downtime.

“We believe there are several emerging market conditions that are driving an increased appeal of our products with our customers,” said McAdam. Today, the growing complexities of corporate networks have extended to invite and serve new technologies and configurations. Organizations that stretch out to multiple locations and business sectors, they face unique issues with IT infrastructure that one-size-fits-all solutions fall short of meeting the status quo. HPE and F5 provide customers with a proven project methodology that combines with a flexible, modular approach to fully integrated IT solutions to meet business needs.

Amidst the rapid growth, many companies face a backlash with storage, security breaches, and regulatory compliance. An alliance solution created by F5 and HPE Security combines F5 BIG-IP LTM, F5 iRules, and HPE SecureData data-centric security technologies to form new reference architecture for data protection at the network edge. The Seattle-based application delivery specialist also has some big investments in store for its channel community around security in coming years.
