“This release offers enhanced reliability and availability for customers who deploy Lync Server 2010,” said Diego Arrabal, Regional Director Middle East, F5 Networks. “F5 technology enables enterprise customers to benefit from a highly scalable and available deployment of Lync Server 2010. We look forward to helping customers realize the highest return from their UC infrastructures.”
As companies rely more heavily on UC to enrich employee interactions, enhance communication, and lower costs, and as they consider deploying voice over IP (VOIP) solutions, the reliability of their UC infrastructure is more critical than ever. The F5 Application Ready Solution provides a tailor-made environment to work with Lync Server 2010, ensuring high availability and resilience for real-time communications.
The F5 Application Ready Solution for Lync Server 2010 offers customers a tightly integrated, tested, and documented solution that provides the following benefits:
F5’s intelligent load balancing, combined with SSL offloading, TCP optimizations, and simple scalability, improve performance to ensure a better user experience. UC client applications are more responsive when supported by BIG-IP solutions because the application health monitoring, intelligent load balancing, and session to site level network optimization ensure the most reliable delivery of Microsoft Lync services.
F5’s application templates, Microsoft policies, and step-by-step configuration guidance help reduce deployment cycles by one third.
A single control point in the data center enables enterprises to extend existing management and monitoring systems by using Windows PowerShell or the F5 Management Pack for Microsoft System Center Operations Manager and Virtual Machine Manager to control BIG-IP devices.
F5 Networks will be participating in TechEd Middle East 2011, held at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre in Dubai, UAE, March 8 – 10. Please visit F5 at booth G3.
