One of the greatest strengths of IBM Cloud’s partnership with VMware is our expanding ecosystem of best-in-class partners. F5 is the newest member of this alliance.
In addition to IBM Cloud’s global reach – an unparalleled 60 data centers worldwide and growing, flexible purchase and deployment options for IBM Cloud for VMware Solutions and extensive client base, IBM Cloud and VMware provide our clients the flexibility to build a multi-cloud solution that works best for them. F5 has joined this partnership in order to extend to our clients the ability to integrate a full range of BIG-IP solutions into these VMware on IBM Cloud deployments — whether on-premises, in the cloud, or multi-cloud.
IBM, F5 and VMware’s joint vision for multi-cloud solutions is to deliver on-premises and public cloud services that work in unison to deliver value. This includes:
Speed: change only what you need to change to get value faster
Flexibility: positioning workloads to best deliver on business objectives
Innovation: integrate cloud services, open communities and emerging technologies (cognitive, block chain, IoT, etc.) to maximize opportunity
Insight: combine your data and processes with new sources of information to get to the best outcomes
Over the last several months IBM Cloud and F5 have collaborated on a solution to give IT organizations the flexibility to increase capacity, adapt to change, and stay ahead of evolving business demands. Our goal is to help clients move VMware workloads to the IBM Cloud seamlessly, using the trusted F5 platform for management, networking, and security.
