Strong partnerships with industry leaders such as NetApp and VMware help us
maximize the efficiency of customers’ virtualization and cloud deployments,”
said Anil Pochiraju, managing director, F5 Networks India.

By implementing F5, NetApp, and VMware products in concert, our customers can
cost effectively scale application resources across data centers, providing
higher availability and optimized performance for multiple scenarios, including
geographically dispersed users, disaster avoidance, and consolidation efforts,
to avoid unplanned downtime within data centers,” Pochiraju added.

F5 has continued its collaboration with NetApp and VMware to further simplify
the migration of applications between data centers. Combining F5, NetApp, and

virtualization beyond traditional, siloed data centers,” said Patrick Rogers,
VP, Corporate Alliances at NetApp. 

As many organizations build out their application deployment models using
virtualization and cloud technologies, interoperable solutions are increasingly
attractive,” said Parag Patel, VP, Global Strategic Alliances at VMware.
