How F5 Networks Profiles for Success

When Seattle-based F5 Networks, Inc. needed to amp up its BIG-IP DNS* solution for developers, it got help from Intel.

Business users expect their applications to be fast, secure, and always available. Anything less is unacceptable. That’s why F5 gives the developers who build those applications the tools they need to deliver maximum speed, security, and availability.

The company’s BIG-IP DNS improves the performance and availability of applications by sending users to the closest or best-performing physical, virtual, or cloud environment. It also hyperscales and secures developers’ domain name service (DNS) infrastructure from distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks and delivers a real-time domain name system security extensions (DNSSEC) solution that protects against hijacking.

“Intel® VTune™ Amplifier helped us identify potential performance bottlenecks in the design and engineering of our high-performance networking systems,” explained James Hendergart, strategic initiatives director for F5 Networks. “We worked with the Intel VTune Amplifier team for about a month. They were very responsive to our needs, adding the capability to run Intel VTune Amplifer remotely and in headless environments. It was a great collaboration between Intel and F5.”
