F5 Delivers Cloud Application Services

PHILIPPINES, NOVEMBER 16, 2016F5 Networks (NASDAQ: FFIV) today unveiled a series of solutions and innovations designed for customers requiring rich, consistent application services across private, public, and hybrid cloud application deployments. In addition, 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 leading security, availability, and performance.

As businesses transform to digital-first organizations, applications and associated services are vital for competitive differentiation. F5 is bringing these solutions to market as IT must enable both established and emerging environments to better integrate DevOps practices, agile development, and cloud resources. F5 sits in a unique position at the convergence of cloud and data center application services, enabling customers to embrace modern infrastructures without sacrificing security and control.

“A digital economy means that applications and services must be easy to deploy, low-friction, and quick to scale to help organizations pivot toward new market opportunities,” said Ryan Kearny, EVP of Product Development and CTO, F5. “Only F5 provides programmable, feature-rich software and hardware to unify the delivery of apps across data center 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.”

Migrating IT workflows to the cloud promises significant advantages, but can place unintended stress on parallel management, security, and operations functions. While evolving their business models, organizations are challenged to deliver service enhancements to keep up with the changing requirements of growing user counts, applications, and traffic volumes. As enterprises travel different paths to the cloud, F5 is introducing technologies that bridge between established IT and more cloud-fluent infrastructure models.

F5 is expanding its BIG-IP offerings with the iSeries. The new hardware platforms incorporate industry-leading programmability with support for node.js via iRules LX, enabling customers to tailor their systems for evolving infrastructure needs. Unique to the iSeries, F5’s TurboFlex technology enables selectable performance profiles to maximize investment protection and deliver dedicated cloud, security, and app delivery optimizations. Similarly, iSeries platforms can be specifically configured to support enhanced DDoS protection, as well as private cloud and SDN technologies from organizations such as OpenStack, Cisco, and VMware. Additional detail about F5’s iSeries platforms is available in this companion blog post.

  • Partner solutions with Equinix for application delivery services in colocation environments

F5’s comprehensive 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—available in 21 markets—F5 provides direct, seamless access to its cloud services, bypassing the public Internet and thus increasing performance and security. And, 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 optimized, secure application delivery model that delivers the utmost in application performance and user experience possible. For more about F5’s collaboration with Equinix and cloud interconnect colocation, please see this Equinix blog post.

  • Lightweight proxy and connector technologies to encourage cloud and hybrid deployments

F5 will expand its agile software portfolio with solutions that are simple to use and integrate with management and orchestration tools. These technologies grant customers a more flexible approach to application deployment and better take advantage of the operations gains and efficiency of the cloud. Specifically, F5 is introducing the following:

  • Application Services Proxy provides basic load balancing and application traffic visibility in a small, lightweight form factor that can quickly be deployed. This gives customers ultimate flexibility in developing, testing, and scaling applications and associated services in concert with cloud and container environments.
  • Container Connector offerings enable the provisioning of services for containerized applications, and make it easy to integrate capabilities from management/orchestration systems such as Kubernetes and Mesos/Marathon. For simple load balancing, Application Services Proxy can be used in highly portable environments; for more substantial application delivery services, the connector automates provisioning to a BIG-IP solution.
  • Application Connector dramatically simplifies access for enterprise applications hosted in the public cloud, providing the security and availability services those applications require. To accomplish this, it delivers application services from the edge of the cloud by automatically discovering cloud-hosted instances and connecting them to the customer’s data center or hosted location.

“F5 has defined goals of easing customers’ transition to the cloud and supporting their application-driven digital initiatives,” said Zeus Kerravala, Principal Analyst, ZK Research. “Organizations can use the company’s hardware and virtual editions to migrate services to a cloud, hosted, or hybrid environment, with F5 technology effectively serving as an advantageous gateway. In the F5 framework, customers and (their app developers) can select cloud providers without limiting services to individual applications, confining themselves to restrictive use cases, or depending on shadow IT to support apps.”

“Today’s organizations are continually asking how they can provide crucial application services—such as identity federation and SSO—in both on-premises and cloud environments,” said 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.”


BIG-IP iSeries platforms are available now. Offerings from F5 and Equinix, along with related partnership details, are available now. Please contact a local F5 sales office for additional product and service availability information pertaining to specific countries. Formal availability for F5’s Application Services Proxy, Container Connector, and Application Connector technologies will be announced at a later date.

MANILA, PHILIPPINES. October 15, 2016 – Suzuki Philippines accelerates interest for its most recently launched product among its primary target market—the micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs)—by presenting the Super Carry at the 15th Association of Filipino Franchisers Inc. (AFFI) Expo at the World Trade Center in Pasay City on October 14 to 16.

Beneficial to businesses in more ways than one, Super Carry is specially designed to help more businesses reach their maximum potential as it is built to efficiently carry out more tasks, and be a practical, cost-efficient and reliable workhorse for any kind of enterprise.

As businesses in the country continue to prosper – along with it comes the increasing demand for vehicles used for the regular transport of goods, resources and manpower over great distances. However, even with the economic growth and its benefits combined, it is still hard to outweigh the inconveniences people encounter on a daily basis.

Heavy traffic, increased fuel costs, uneven road condition and the worsening pollution to identify several of them – these pressing issues do not only apply to people but the same goes especially for vehicles to which these businesses are heavily reliant on.

“Through providing the market with a vehicle capable of withstanding the toughest of conditions, Suzuki believes the Super Carry is designed with attributes fit to address such issues,” added Mr. Hoshikura.

To further highlight the attributes of their latest model, Suzuki Philippines will feature during the three-day event a line-up of the Super Carry each particularly modified for commercial use.
