F5 Networks, a provider of application delivery networking systems, announced that cloud service provider Lokahi Solutions has implemented F5’s BIG-IP Application Delivery Controllers as a key component of its Comprehensive Cloud Solutions service offering.

Lokahi’s Infrastructure Virtualization Engine, the technology that supports the company’s cloud offering, provides network management, disaster recovery, network security, capacity planning and email hosting in the cloud.

“F5 BIG-IP products help us remove barriers to cloud adoption, ensuring that the Lokahi Infrastructure Virtualization Engine is highly available and highly secure,” Jeffrey Dahn, founder and CEO of Lokahi, said in a statement. “F5 was the natural choice for security and performance because it integrates extremely well with our platform.”

Lokahi has implemented multiple BIG-IP product modules, including Access Policy Manager, which provides global access to customers’ applications and network infrastructures; WAN Optimization Manager, which speeds data transfers over a WAN, ensuring traffic between data centers is optimized, encrypted and highly available; and Global Traffic Manager, which directs users to the closest or best-performing data center based on traffic volume and business policy.

“With BIG-IP devices in place, we can securely connect users to their data and applications in a number of ways, including via mobile devices,” Dahn added. “Our customers experience significant cost reductions because they no longer have to maintain or manage their IT infrastructures.”
