Hybrid cloud application services provider F5 Networks announced a multi-year global Strategic Collaboration Agreement (SCA) with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to allow customers to use F5 for new cloud-native application workloads and extend their existing F5 investments on AWS.
The Strategic Collaboration Agreement will enhance companies’ ability to leverage the full suite of F5 Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and cloud-native application services to migrate, build, secure, and operate their applications on AWS, the company said in a statement.
As part of the collaboration, F5 and AWS will work to create a frictionless path to allow customers to easily upgrade to F5’s next-generation application services.
Chad Whalen, Executive Vice President, Worldwide Sales at F5, said, “F5 has collaborated closely with AWS for years, most recently on our SaaS offering, F5 Cloud Services. Together with AWS, we are providing a set of solutions that help enterprises deploy apps quickly and securely, while ensuring they are performant and comply with policy.”
Chad Whalen, added, “This aligns with our strategy of supporting modern DevOps practices and serving engineering teams with capabilities that create the most efficient path from code to customer.”
Mike Clayville, Vice President, Worldwide Commercial Sales and Business Development at Amazon Web Services, Inc, said, “The ability to deploy and run applications on AWS using F5 services is an important requirement for many customers that have standardized on F5 for application delivery and security.”
Mike Clayville, added, “This Strategic Collaboration Agreement elevates our historic relationship with F5 to a higher level.
