Spain : F5 Solutions Combine with VXLAN to Support SDN.
Building on F5 s partnership with VMware including recently announced participation in the VMware Ready for Networking and Security Program these collaborative technology efforts help joint customers realize additional value by deploying the companies solutions in concert. Organizations can select either physical BIG-IP devices or BIG-IP virtual editions to leverage the full suite of F5 s ADN services, such as security, acceleration, and optimization technologies, while realizing the added efficiency of a VXLAN-based network.
F5 solutions occupy strategic points of control in the network, putting us in a great position to collaborate with VMware in optimizing customers virtualization and cloud infrastructures, said Jim Ritchings, SVP of Business Development at F5. The BIG-IP platform serves as an ideal gateway to help organizations achieve the full benefits of F5 s ADN services in their SDN deployments. To further this aim, F5 will continue to enhance its BIG-IP virtual editions in the coming months by increasing current throughput performance levels by up to 200 percent. Today s announcement and F5 s ongoing investments in innovation underscore our commitment to customers cloud initiatives with VMware.
Organizations are pursuing increasingly dynamic IT deployment models, with SDN and related technologies currently top-of-mind. F5 provides solutions that ensure scalability, security, and manageability across customers IT environments to help make software defined data centers a reality. A key element of F5 s approach is the ability to seamlessly interoperate with different network topologies, including both traditional VLANs and other emerging SDN frameworks like VXLAN.
VXLAN provides a way for organizations to decouple virtual domains from the underlying networking and virtualization infrastructure, enhancing overall system flexibility, scalability, and resilience. With VXLAN, customers can create isolated multi-tenant broadcast domains across the existing data center fabric.
