Helping others fills our soul with love and hope. It creates a more meaningful existence, for both ourselves and those we touch through our contributions. Volunteering is one of the most beautiful aspects of being human.
Like most of the global community, we are witnessing the intensifying war on Ukraine with a mixture of shock, grief, and anger. Our hearts go out to the people facing the invasion of their homeland, separation from loved ones, and displacement from the land they love. While world governments determine how to respond to this act of aggression, those of us in the business sphere must address the war on Ukraine as not just a commercial concern, but as a moral imperative.
At F5, our commitment to the fight against racism is a foundational part of our culture as a company. We consider diversity and inclusion part of being an F5er. Today, our F5 Appreciates Blackness (FAB) employee inclusion group, the Diversity & Inclusion team, alongside our Exec Team, shared the steps we are taking as a company, and the pledge we are taking as individuals.
For additional background on how F5 is responding to COVID-19, I wanted to share a copy of the email I sent to our customers worldwide.
The new NGINX Controller 3.0 brings enhanced enterprise features that go beyond what both traditional and cloud-native solutions can offer.

François Locoh-Donou shares a copy of the email sent to global staff announcing F5’s agreement to acquire Shape Security.
F5 CEO François Locoh-Donou introduces a blog series to explore the divide that has existed between modern, open source applications developed in (and for) the cloud and the traditional, mission-critical applications that are often the last to migrate out of the enterprise data center.
I am thrilled to announce we have signed an agreement to acquire the open source leader in application delivery, NGINX.
