F5 Inc

F5 Networks is a leading provider of technology that optimizes the delivery of network-based applications and the security, performance and availability of servers, data storage devices and other network resources. As strategic points of control within a network, our products collectively function as a dynamic control plane that simplifies the management of data center operations and delivery of services across diverse data center resources.

Founded in 1996, F5 Networks pioneered load-balancing technology that distributes internet traffic evenly across multiple servers, making them look like a single device. Today, our BIG-IP application delivery controllers sit in front of web and application servers, balancing traffic and performing compute-intensive functions such as encrypting and un-encrypting transmissions, screening traffic for security threats, maintaining open connections with servers, speeding the flow of traffic, managing access to applications and data and a variety of other functions that improve the performance, availability and security of applications. By offloading functions from servers, BIG-IP application delivery controllers make servers more efficient, reduce the number of servers needed to run specific applications and reduce operating costs by simplifying the management of servers and applications. In virtual environments, this allows customers to increase the density of virtual servers running on physical servers and reduces the added complexity of managing a dynamic environment. BIG-IP application delivery controllers also support software modules that manage the flow of traffic between multiple data centers and across multiple service provider connections, ensuring that this traffic is always routed to the most available resource and enabling on-demand access to resources within and outside customer data centers. In addition, we offer complementary products that provide secure remote access to corporate networks and optimize the delivery of applications and data over wide-area networks.

The core of our application delivery controllers and related products is our full-proxy Traffic Management Operating System (TMOS) that enables these products to inspect and modify traffic flows to and from servers at network speed and supports a broad and growing array of functions that enhance the speed, performance and availability of applications. iRules, a scripting language based on TCL (Tool Command Language), is a unique feature of TMOS that enables customers and third parties to write customized rules to inspect and modify traffic. TMOS also supports a common software interface called iControl, which enables our products to communicate with one another and with third-party products, including custom and commercial enterprise applications. TMOS is designed to support the addition of new functionality as software modules and to exploit the performance-enhancing features of our purpose-built hardware platforms. Correspondingly, our hardware architecture integrates industry standard components with the unique features and characteristics of TMOS to deliver performance that is, we believe, demonstrably superior to competing products.

Just as our application delivery controllers make many servers look like one, ARX storage virtualization products sit in front of network attached storage (NAS), making multiple storage devices from different vendors look like a single device to the individual clients, servers and applications that use them. This frees users and storage administrators from the time-consuming task of mapping individual drives to specific clients and applications. In addition, ARX products simplify the migration of data between storage devices, the addition of new storage devices, and the distribution of data across tiers of storage that reflect the relative importance or immediacy of the data.

In connection with our products, we offer a broad range of services including consulting, training, installation, maintenance and other technical support services.


Our customers include a wide variety of enterprise customers and service providers among Fortune 1000 and Business Week Global 1000 companies, including those in technology, telecommunications, financial services, transportation, education, manufacturing and healthcare, along with government customers.


The expanding capabilities of our product offerings have enabled us to address a growing array of opportunities, many of which are outside the bounds of the traditional Layer 4-7 market. Within what Gartner Group has defined as the Application Acceleration market, we compete in the Application Delivery Controller (ADC) market, which encompasses the traditional Layer 4-7 market, and, to a lesser extent, the WAN Optimization Controller (WOC) market. Over the next several years, we believe these two markets will merge as WAN optimization effectively becomes a feature of Application Delivery. Today, we offer WebAccelerator and WOM as software modules on most all BIG-IP products.

Our products and services were sold into the ADN market where our primary competitor is Cisco Systems, Inc. Other competitors in this market include Citrix Systems, Inc., Brocade Communications Systems, Inc., Radware Ltd, and a number of smaller competitors including A10 Networks, Array Networks, Inc., Barracuda Networks, Inc., Crescendo Networks, and Zeus Technology Ltd. In the adjacent WAN Optimization Controller market, we compete with Riverbed Technology, Inc., Juniper Networks, Inc., Blue Coat Systems, Inc., Cisco and Citrix. Currently, we do not compete in the branch office segment of the WOC market, which features products offered by Riverbed, Blue Coat, Cisco and others.

While file virtualization remains an early-stage market, we believe our ARX products are unique in terms of technology and functionality and are well positioned within this emerging market. Large storage vendors such as EMC Corporation offer competing products with overlapping functionality. However, we believe there are no competing products that offer all of the features, functions and capabilities of our ARX products.
