The new program validates BIG-IP virtual editions within a growing list of leading cloud provider environments, giving customers more choice, confidence and budget flexibility when deploying apps in the cloud.

F5 Ready is a global program that serves to verify that F5’s software-based solutions support a broad array of cloud providers worldwide, making the agility, efficiency, and cost savings of cloud accessible to more organisations. Customers will now be able to better ensure the security, performance and availability of applications in cloud environments.

Alex Rublowsky, Senior Director, Licensing Business Models at F5, said: “Organisations going to the cloud want to know that they don’t have to give up their valuable application services to get there.

“Through the F5 ready program, customers can keep their trusted security, availability and acceleration services – even as they evaluated cloud service providers, combine technologies from multiple vendors, and look to scale additional application resource to public cloud environments.”

F5 Ready promotes interoperability and resource efficiency, aiding the industry’s migration of applications and services into private, public and hybrid cloud environments. F5 has invested in this new program and will continue to add cloud providers from around the globe and across industries to ensure it can best serve the diverse needs of its customers worldwide.
