F5 is the recognized leader in Application Delivery Networking. The company provides solutions that make sure business applications are always secure, fast and available. Over 10,000 organizations and service providers worldwide trust F5 to keep their applications running.  

Technology Solutions include:

• Acceleration Solutions
F5 helps your network and applications work faster, use fewer resources, and perform more cost-effectively. By improving replication between data centers, F5 can help you meet stringent disaster RPO/RTOs and get more from your existing WAN bandwidth. F5 solutions have the flexibility to fit within any application deployment, regardless of size, configuration, or location. And because they are fully integrated on the F5 BIG-IP system, you can save on hardware costs, rack space, and energy consumption as well as management resources.

• Availability Solutions 
Your applications need to be consistently accessible in order to prevent costly downtime and lost productivity. F5 technology gives you the power and flexibility to set availability priorities based on requirements such as security, uptime, reliability, and performance.

• Cloud Computing Solutions
For organizations looking to get substantial ROI from virtualization and cloud computing initiatives, the true costs of managing an exploding number of applications—spanning multiple sites and sometimes outside of corporate control—can lead to diminished returns. Flexibility comes at a cost of complexity and an inability to maintain control of applications and data.

F5’s suite of Application Delivery Networking products, in conjunction with third-party software, hardware, and service provider solutions, combine to provide you with a new way of understanding how, where, and when your applications are deployed. You maintain corporate control while still gaining the flexibility and simplicity you demand.

• Security Solutions 
Your business, infrastructure, users, applications, and data are under constant threat from unauthorized access and malicious attacks. With flexible, efficient, and cost-effective security, F5 can help you minimize the risks that come with serving customers and sustaining a mobile workforce. From enterprise and access security to network and application protection, F5's unified security solutions give you a comprehensive approach to protecting your complex environment from constantly changing threats.

• Service Providers Solutions
With the massive growth in demand for IP-based services worldwide, mobile operators, wireline carriers, and cable operators face constant challenges to scale infrastructure quickly, implement innovative new services efficiently, and maximize average revenue per user (ARPU).

F5 offers carrier-grade solutions that are used by all of the top 10 mobile and fixed service providers worldwide, and by every major cable company in the U.S. and Europe. The F5 Service Delivery Network provides a unified foundation with deep session intelligence, integrated services management, and dynamic adaptability to fit any service offering. You gain the ability to scale to meet growing demand, control infrastructure costs, reduce operating complexity, and quickly provision profitable, differentiated services.

• Storage Solutions
Today's IT infrastructures are complex and inflexible--and most of them just keep growing. Storage expenditures keep rising, resources are consumed by labor-intensive tasks, and management costs are spiraling higher. You can simplify data management and get costs under control with F5 intelligent file virtualization, which can reduce infrastructure complexity and boost operational efficiency.

• Virtualization Solutions
Virtualization can be a powerful tool to help you cut costs and improve availability and management efficiency, but its impact on surrounding IT resources can cause unexpected problems. Whether you're just starting a storage or server virtualization project or you're looking to realize the full benefits of a complete virtual data center, F5 can help you build a dynamic, virtualization-ready infrastructure that will help you achieve your current and future business goals.
