Yesterday F5 announced a holistic approach to enable a common cloud architectural model—regardless of where IT resources actually reside.  Unifying Application Delivery, Access Control and Optimization to the cloud along with ongoing collaboration with technology partners like Microsoft, VMware, and Gomez, enables enterprises and service providers to realize the potential of ‘On-Demand IT’ through a dynamic services model.  There is a lot of information on this and wanted to share some of the technical whitepapers available for this solution.

The F5 Powered Cloud

How F5 solutions power a cloud computing architecture capable of delivering highly-available, secure, and optimized on-demand application services.

The Optimized and Accelerated Cloud

As more organizations begin moving applications into the cloud, congestion will become an increasingly critical issue. F5 offers solutions for optimizing and accelerating applications in the cloud, making them fast and available wherever they reside.

Availability and the Cloud

Cloud computing offers IT another tool to deliver applications. While enticing, challenges still exist in making sure the application is always available. F5’s flexible, unified solutions ensure high availability for cloud deployments.

Securing the Cloud

Cloud computing has become another key resource for IT deployments, but there is still fear of securing applications and data in the cloud. With F5 devices, you can keep your most precious assets safe, no matter where they live.
