Since 2006, HP and F5 have collaborated to resolve business and technology challenges for enterprise customers. F5 is a member of the HP AllianceONE program, with affiliations in Security, Networking, and Enterprise Management specialties. This alliance provides a best-of-breeds technology choice for customers looking to increase business efficiency, by aligning business challenges with IT infrastructures.
By using F5 BIG-IP solutions, combined with physical and virtual solutions from HP data centers and network infrastructure, customers can drive IT agility—ensuring high levels of performance, security, and availability, at the lowest possible cost. Together, HP and F5 have deployed solutions and services offerings to strategic outsourcing customers, enterprise commercial companies, and public sector organizations around the world, helping them all keep their applications and IT infrastructures running seamlessly. With these joint solutions, customers can easily address latency issues without investing in additional bandwidth, can optimize network performance to meet application initiatives, and can consolidate infrastructure to meet ongoing growth challenges.
“IT needs to move at the speed of the organization, but legacy application, network, and user configuration practices are barriers to achieving this necessary agility. Through HP Virtual Application Networks and our collaboration with F5, clients will be able to virtualize and automate the entire configuration process—from application to network to user—based on policy-driven management, enabling them to deploy applications to users in minutes, not weeks or months."
