F5 Highlights Optimised Application Delivery for Virtual Desktop Infrastructures at VMworld Europe 2012


F5 Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: FFIV), the global leader in Application Delivery Networking, today announced its activities at VMworld® 2012, taking place on 8th – 11th October at the Fira Barcelona Gran Via exhibition centre in Barcelona, Spain. A Gold sponsor, F5’s speaker sessions, on-booth demos and technical experts at the event will highlight ways in which enterprise IT professionals can improve the agility of their systems. Be sure to follow @F5NetworksEMEA on Twitter for details of exclusive competitions and prizes to be won at the show.

F5 will focus on showing how BIG-IP® solutions enhance the value of VMware View® environments and improve operational efficiency by streamlining service provisioning and orchestration in the cloud with VMware vCloud®. F5 will specifically address how the BIG-IP platform supports the transformation of remote and branch offices into agile, secure and cost-efficient operations.

Visit F5 at Booth #G100: "Connect. Secure. Orchestrate." 

One of the biggest challenges facing businesses in Europe today is how to incorporate successful, flexible BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) policies. F5 will have several mobile solutions at Booth #G100 for visitors to explore how BIG-IP solutions improve access management by augmenting the scalability, security, and availability of VMware View environments.

On-booth Demonstrations:

Both the demos below are made possible using F5® BIG-IP products and iRules®—a key differentiator for F5 that helps customise how network resources are directed:

  • The F5 Single Namespace solution.  This demo shows how to simplify users’ access to VMware View at different times from different locations. This is especially beneficial to VMware View deployments with multiple pods or sites by providing users with simplified access and an improved user experience.
  • The F5 Username Persistence solution.  This demo, aimed at maintaining user connections irrespective of device or location, enables a user to change devices or locations and reconnect to an existing desktop session, resulting in a better user experience.

Technical Sessions: "Integrating Application Delivery Services with VMware Solutions"

F5 will present two technical sessions that explain how organizations can leverage F5’s industry-leading Application Delivery Networking solutions in VMware cloud and virtual desktop environments to maximise application performance, availability, security, and manageability. The first, ‘Solving the Application Provisioning Nightmare’, is co-presented with VMware. F5 also feature in two VMware-led sessions. Individual session titles are listed below, along with corresponding links to additional information:
