F5 Networks has become a member of the HP ProCurve Open Network Ecosystem.
In a move to give customers the flexibility to choose a secure multi-vendor IT environment instead of costly proprietary models, F5 will provide its BIG-IP Application Delivery Controller products to extend the flexibility, scalability, and security within the HP ProCurve ONE infrastructure.
The program delivers tested and certified solutions that are interoperable with HP ProCurve technology. Through this, organisations are able to utilise applications and services to deliver a consistent networking environment.
Marius Haas, senior vice president and general manager, HP ProCurve, said: “HP ProCurve and our HP ProCurve ONE alliance partners have a common goal of helping customers accelerate the adoption of next-generation data centres by adding network infrastructure solutions to one of the industry's broadest portfolios of servers, storage, services, and software.”
Dan Matte, SVP of marketing and business development at F5 Networks, said: “HP ProCurve ONE offers customers a choice of networking alternatives through collaboration with technology leaders, freeing businesses from proprietary, single-vendor environments when building or transforming their IT infrastructure.”
