New F5 Architecture Design for Microsoft Exchange professional
services offering announced
Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: FFIV), the global leader in Application
Delivery Networking (ADN), today announced that the company is
participating in Microsoft
TechEd North America 2012, taking place June 11–14 in Orlando, Fla.
F5 will showcase solutions created for Microsoft productivity and cloud
environments in F5’s booth #615.
F5 Solutions for Microsoft Exchange
Today, F5 debuts a new professional services offering, the F5®
Architecture Design for Microsoft Exchange. This consulting engagement
is designed to aid customers in preparing their network infrastructure
for a deployment, upgrade, or migration of Microsoft Exchange Server and
maximize their investments in F5 technology.
“We’re excited to see companies such as F5, with its F5 Architecture
Design for Microsoft Exchange, build on Windows Server 2012 capabilities
and demonstrate their products at TechEd in Orlando, Fla. this week,”
said Mark Miller, Director, Server and Tools Marketing at Microsoft Corp.
F5 is also showcasing solutions developed for Microsoft to enhance the
security of Exchange Server infrastructure. With F5’s ICSA-certified
data center firewall solution, application attacks that are designed
to penetrate the network are handled at the perimeter, so that data
centers can continue to deliver Exchange services while helping to
protect the infrastructure. In addition, F5® solutions enable
a seamless single sign-on experience across both on-premise and cloud
environments, while also providing for pre-authentication of user
Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V Network Virtualization
TechEd attendees are invited to view a virtualized network architecture
created by F5 with Microsoft that enables agile cloud deployments. The
demonstration shows the ease of managing application workloads across
traditional network and data center boundaries using an F5
BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager™ and Hyper-V Network
Virtualization. The solution demonstrates how to move an on-premise
virtual machine (VM), like one providing Active Directory Federation
Services, to a shared infrastructure hosted data center without changing
the IP address of the application VM.
