Building an efficient, enterprise-class data center requires virtualization. It’s critical to maintaining an adaptable network and accomplishing application scale, consolidation, and business continuity.
Whether you’re taking advantage of server, desktop, or application virtualization, F5 provides hardware and software solutions that help you rethink your network infrastructure. With F5, you can achieve the highest efficiency and get the most from your operational resources.
As data centers continue to move toward a resource demand model, infrastructure virtualization becomes the means to creating an agile, adaptable data center. F5 brings together many infrastructure virtualization technologies to support your dynamic, virtualized data center.
Desktop virtualization delivers anywhere access to your users while also making centralized management and security possible for your IT department. However, creating the virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) necessary for desktop virtualization comes with a unique set of challenges for your network. F5 provides solutions that can optimize, accelerate, secure, and integrate with major VDI solutions—so you can support all your users, from any location, on any device.
As virtualization technologies have matured, management tools have also evolved and can now drastically reduce the “time to virtual machine.” But there’s still a fundamental lack of support for server virtualization at the network level. By integrating directly with all major server virtualization deployment and management tools, F5 brings network management capabilities to server virtualization, helping you reduce deployment complexity and increase efficiency and productivity.
Traditional networks simply don't offer the flexibility and agility that modern organizations require. F5 simplifies your transition to a cloud network architecture by providing network virtualization to consistently deliver application delivery services like load balancing, optimization, and security for critical applications across your traditional and SDN environments.
