SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 5, 2000--F5 Networks, Inc.,
(Nasdaq:FFIV) the leading provider of Internet traffic and content
management (iTCM) products, announced today an OEM license
agreement that gives Dell access to all of F5's iTCM products.
Immediately, the two companies will begin work to bring F5's
award-winning high availability and intelligent load-balancing software,
BIG-IP(R), to market on a Dell PowerApp appliance server. This
appliance server product will be targeted for service providers,
dot-coms, and brick-to-click businesses, and other organizations
building out their Internet infrastructure.
"Our PowerApp product strategy focuses on applications located at
the edge of the Internet infrastructure," said Michael Lambert, senior
vice president, Dell Enterprise Systems Group. "Traffic management
is one of those critical applications and cementing a partnership with
the market leader, F5 Networks, is a big win for Dell and our
customers. We've found that service providers and dot-coms want
integrated, turnkey systems that are easy to install, simple to manage,
and offer outstanding value. Integrating F5's BIG-IP software on our
PowerApp appliance servers will give customers a turnkey system
that can day and night, without a stop, distribute traffic for the most
mission-critical e-commerce systems."
The Dell-branded traffic management solution targets enterprises and
service providers that are looking for a turnkey platform; one that
offers a single vendor solution for a tightly integrated,
high-performance, flexible e-Business infrastructure. This
announcement underscores the universal applicability of F5's
technology, which brings a rich feature set that can be easily
integrated into the leading server and networking platforms in the
"F5 has quickly moved beyond the basics of load balancing to
comprehensive Internet traffic and content management," said Mark
Hoover, President of Acuitive, Inc. "Their strategy has been well
aligned with the technical and business dynamics associated with the
build out of e-Business infrastructures by service providers,
dot-coms, and enterprises. The announcement with Dell bodes well
for them to expand their market opportunity and become an even
greater force in the industry."
Availability of operations, in addition to fast response time, is critical to
delivering the best web experience for customers. F5's BIG-IP
product provides high availability and intelligent traffic management for
a single Internet site or data center, and offers another level of
fault-tolerance by eliminating single points of failure on a network. By
intelligently distributing customer requests across a group of servers,
BIG-IP helps to ensure that an e-Business' content and applications
are always available.
"The seamless integration of F5's high availability and intelligent traffic
management software with Dell's PowerApp appliance server
platform will bring significant value to the marketplace as customers
look to consolidate their network infrastructure to optimize
manageability without sacrificing performance," said Jeff Hussey,
Chairman, President and CEO at F5 Networks. "Our relationship with
Dell represents a key milestone in F5's recently announced product
strategy roadmap to partner with leading infrastructure providers to
work toward the goal of becoming the definitive standard for Internet
traffic and content management."
