Case Study: F5

F5 Logo

F5 Networks, a Fortune 1000™ company, facilitates and safeguards the delivery of web applications. From data centers to cloud solutions to unified communications, F5 provides intelligent application delivery through strategic points of control in an organizations’ IT infrastructure. Today hardware, software and cloud-based solutions must work successfully in nearly infinite combinations.

Microsoft, in addition to its ubiquitous Office applications, develops .NET, Windows Server, Azure and other networking, internet and cloud technologies. F5 partners with Microsoft and other leading tech firms to integrate their technologies to ensure availability, performance, and security for these firms and their end users.

When F5 sought data center space for a testing site adjacent to Microsoft’s Redmond campus, they looked to Colocation Northwest to provide:

Redmond Data Center

  • Secure 24/7 access
  • Cabinet space with the ability to scale
  • Low latency connectivity with Microsoft and other F5 sites
  • Office space for employee work, on-site meetings and equipment storage

Colocation Northwest offered a desirable location less than a mile from Microsoft headquarters just as F5 required. Also, their dark fiber hub around Lake Washington, delivers their data traffic directly to Microsoft and F5’s point of presence, and from there to their corporate and IT offices around the world.

From Colocation Northwest’s Redmond data center, F5 can:

  • Easily meet with and provide demos for Microsoft and other partners
  • Make fast or frequent hardware and software updates
  • Efficiently exchange data with their partners and F5 offices around the world

Colocation Northwest data centers offer a powerful combination of convenient locations and high-speed interconnectivity.
