STORY HIGHLIGHTS
• F5 customers can deploy application services across cloud and hybrid IT systems with maximum flexibility.
• With F5’s utility billing offerings on AWS, customers only pay for what they use spinning up or down instances as needed to optimize overall costs. Customers can choose hourly pricing or pursue a fixed cost model through the previously announced perpetual license approach. As the first step, F5 is providing use of its BIG-IP® Local Traffic Manager™ (LTM™) Virtual Edition software through the AWS Marketplace at no additional charge for a limited time.
• F5 is adding its management and orchestration tool, BIG-IQ™ Cloud, to the AWS Marketplace, as well as the first in a series of F5 Test Drive demonstrations, showcasing BIG-IP support for SharePoint deployments.

AWS re:Invent, F5 Networks (NASDAQ: FFIV) announced today an hourly billing model for its BIG-IP® Virtual Editions, and availability of its BIG-IQ™ Cloud orchestration product in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace.

By introducing flexible billing options for BIG-IP Virtual Editions, F5 (f5.com) provides customers with the ability to spin up (or down) application delivery infrastructure and services as needed. Organizations can quickly and seamlessly enable application-focused capabilities such as cloud bursting, cloud-based app development and testing, and moving entire application workloads to the cloud without requiring the up-front investment previously associated with such tasks. As its first utility billing solution available, F5 is offering promotional use of its BIG-IP® Local Traffic Manager™ Virtual Edition at no additional charge ($0 per hour) for a limited time in the AWS Marketplace, with other solutions to follow.

Today’s news is aligned with the recently announced F5 Synthesis™ architectural vision, which promotes simplified business models and licensing options, enhancing the value of F5® solutions for customers. The new offerings build on F5’s previously announced solution on AWS, available in a “Bring Your Own License” (BYOL) model. Now, the BIG-IQ Cloud orchestration solution is also available for AWS through BYOL. In addition, a number of Test Drive demonstrations will be available at no additional charge to highlight the benefits of using F5 solutions on AWS to support popular applications, such as SharePoint and others.

Key Benefits:

• Simplified Deployment of Application Services in the Cloud By introducing on-demand provisioning, utility billing, and Test Drive demonstration capabilities, F5 is enabling organizations and application developers to easily add services to support their applications.

• Improved Systems Agility Pay-per-use models through the AWS Marketplace enable organizations to maintain elastic Application Delivery Controller (ADC) infrastructure resources and react quickly to change. Utility billing and Test Drives from F5 let customers try out services on a limited basis to determine the best way to support their specific applications and business needs

• Flexible Billing and Reduced Capital Expenses AWS customers can pay just for the F5 services they use, lowering overall TCO. Hourly pricing models remove the need for up-front capital expenses, making F5’s industry-leading ADC capabilities more accessible to the growing number of AWS customers. In addition, with BIG-IQ Cloud, customers are well positioned to automate capacity management for ADC services, leading to additional cost savings.

• Enhanced Orchestration and Infrastructure Visibility BIG-IQ Cloud enables customers to rapidly deploy and simplify the orchestration of services in cloud, data center, and hybrid IT environments. In addition, it provides a centralized view into health and monitoring statistics for BIG-IP solutions. This delivers a clear picture of when additional resources are needed to support fluctuating demands from applications and users.
