We’ve done it again! For the past two years the F5 and Red Hat business development and product teams have demonstrated the tremendous joint value that integrated, certified and documented solutions can bring to our customers. As a result, Red Hat honored F5 with a Partner Technology Innovation Award at Red Hat Summit in Boston last week. Our efforts with Ansible and OpenShift to enable customers to easily and thoroughly deploy F5’s application and security services were highlighted during the ceremony.

The history of strong cooperation between our companies demonstrates how a partnership can succeed by aligning both companies’ mutual interests to provide a fully integrated solution that solves real customer needs.  This year the Red Hat and F5 teams have been especially active. Here are a few key highlights:

  • F5 has been hosting Ansible network automation workshops throughout North America. These have proven to be a great resource for our customers and the last few that have been full to capacity.
  • F5 and Red Hat partnered to build a true Multi-Cloud solution with OpenShift and F5 Container Ingress Services running in Azure, AWS and a private cloud environment.
  • F5 and HPE demonstrated the scale and security provided with F5’s the Container Ingress Services running with OpenShift on HPE’s Synergy converged infrastructure platform.
  • F5 and Red Hat have demonstrated our multi-cloud solution with OpenShift at sponsored Red Hat user groups and presented our joint solution at the Red Hat ‘Mobile Lab’ event in Charlotte, NC.

To recap, it’s been a busy year! But the journey continues forward. F5’s recent acquisition of NGINX demonstrates our expanding commitment to Open Source communities and will provide the partnership with new opportunities to help solve customer challenges. “Three-peats” are hard, but we’re going to try anyway. Even if we don’t win another Partner Award, our customers will definitely benefit from us trying!
