Happy F5 Day! #iamf5 It’s been a big year for us since last F5 day, so we have a lot of celebrate! Cue the cake and ice cream (seriously, we’ve got them in all of our offices around the globe today).
 
Our entrance into the cloud services delivery space with Silverline was met with rave reviews; Silverline DDoS mitigation was named “Product of the Week” by Network World. We continued to build on our existing strengths, recognized as “Leader” in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for ADCs for the eight consecutive year and earning a “Recommended” status for our BIG-IP ASM from NSS Labs. Our partner ecosystem continued to flourish, and F5 became a VCE Technology partner, with our ADCs achieving Vblock Ready certification to enable orchestrated service capabilities across converged IT systems. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg of what we accomplished this year!
 
Of course, F5 Day is not just about celebrating our successes, it’s also about celebrating and thanking all the people of F5! We’re extremely proud of what we’ve achieved together, and even more proud that we’ve done it while keeping our F5 team spirit. Those of us in the company can feel this day in and day out, but it was still nice to have it validated this year by Glassdoor, who honored F5 as a Best Place to Work based on employee reviews – #4 among all large companies in the US. 
 
And today we celebrate our communities as well: F5 teams around the world are taking time out today give back to society and contribute to charity and community organizations. 
 
Once again, Happy F5 Day! Here’s to another great year ahead!
