F5 Networks promote cloud application services
F5's new solutions designed for private, public, and hybrid cloud application deployments
F5 Networks has released an array of solutions designed for customers requiring rich, consistent application services across private, public, and hybrid cloud application deployments.
Furthermore, F5 announced combined solutions with Equinix Cloud Exchange and Performance Hub that empower enterprises to deploy business-critical applications in multiple public cloud infrastructures with security, availability, and performance.
Ryan Kearny, EVP of product development and CTO, F5, said: "A digital economy means that applications and services must be easy to deploy, low-friction, and quick to scale to help organisations pivot toward new market opportunities.
"Only F5 provides programmable, feature-rich software and hardware to unify the delivery of apps across data centre and cloud environments, including container and microservices use cases. Our solutions further reduce deployment time through valuable integrations, native orchestration capabilities, and compelling partnership solutions, such as our colocation offerings with Equinix."
"Today's organisations are continually asking how they can provide crucial application services-such as identity federation and SSO-in both on-premises and cloud environments," added Greg Adgate, VP, Global Partnerships & Alliances, Equinix. "By offering connectivity to critical applications via the Equinix Cloud Exchange and integrating them with our Performance Hub solution, we are enabling customers to heighten productivity and enhance security to a globally distributed user base, and with lower costs."
F5's partnership with Equinix, leveraging both the Equinix Cloud Exchange and Performance Hub, enables enhanced global access to application delivery and security services. Through the Equinix Cloud Exchange, F5 provides direct access to its cloud services, bypassing the public Internet and thus increasing performance and security.
Plus, by combining the F5 cloud gateway with Equinix Performance Hub, customers can take advantage of a hybrid interconnection model, providing high-speed and low-latency connectivity between multiple cloud providers and enterprise networks. The net result of F5 and Equinix efforts is an optimised, secure application delivery model that delivers the utmost in application performance and user experience possible.
