Scale further and faster

F5 helps you achieve higher scale-up within a FlexPod, so you can run more applications within the same footprint. In addition, seamless scale-out across multiple FlexPods allows you to rapidly increase your application capacity as your business grows.

Increase availability and performance

FlexPod makes deploying new applications easier than ever. However, you still need to make sure they’re fast and available. With F5, you can keep your applications up and running while maximizing server performance and ensuring fast, uninterrupted access for users.

Respond to changing needs

F5 enables you to dynamically scale your virtual application environment. Shift application resources or provision new servers on demand to increase your application capacity as needed and better respond to changing business needs.

Ensure business continuity

Even the cloud can go down. F5 provides monitoring, geographic distribution, and real-time intelligence to direct traffic to available data centers, ensuring that users have access to the applications and data they need.
