F5 Intros Application Delivery Platform

SEATTLE -- F5 Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: FFIV), the global leader in Application Delivery Networking, today announced a new release of its industry leading BIG-IPR software as well as a new high performance BIG-IP 8800 platform. The new solutions allow customers to consolidate a wide range of application delivery tasks onto a single platform, while simultaneously simplifying the building, testing and delivery of networked applications. As a result, customers enjoy lower acquisition and operations costs which substantially lower the TCO of Application Delivery Networking.

"The 8800 is an ideal application switch to help Zango manage business growth and control costs," said Doug Hanhart, Chief Information Officer of Zango, an online media company. "We have more than 20 million opt-in consumers - adding 200,000 new users each day - enjoying our online content.
But, even with this traffic volume and growth expectation, the BIG-IP 8800 is powerful enough to allow us to consolidate traffic from multiple lower-end BIG-IP's onto a single platform, which is much more cost effective and easier to manage than multiple units. We couldn't do this with any of the other products on the market today."
