Santa Clara, Calif. (PRWEB) August 16, 2012
Gale Technologies, a leading provider of cloud management solutions that power Infrastructure as a Service for enterprises, labs, and service providers, today announced that it has joined F5 Networks’ Technology Alliance Program (TAP). By partnering with F5, the global leader in Application Delivery Networking, Gale Technologies gains access to F5 technology solutions and resources in order to maximize the value of deploying the companies’ products together.
“Agility of application infrastructure deployments is a rapidly growing need in enterprises. This means automating repetitive tasks as well as building private or hybrid clouds for self-service fulfillment of application services,” said Garima Thockchom, vice president marketing, at Gale Technologies. “We are pleased to announce a technology alliance with F5 and the introduction of the GaleForce Automation Adapter for F5’s BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager. Deploying Gale Technologies and F5 products together further accelerates application delivery by automating the end-to-end physical and virtual infrastructure needed to power the service.”
About GaleForce Software:
GaleForce Software is used to power private and hybrid clouds within enterprise, government, technology vendor, and service provider markets. GaleForce deployments have nearly doubled in the last 4 quarters due in most part to strong differentiated features of self-service automated provisioning of heterogeneous environments spanning across compute, network, storage, and edge devices. Through the TAP partnership, F5 promotes assured interoperability and continued innovation with Gale Technologies, and provides a framework for ongoing collaboration.
The GaleForce software and automation adapter for the F5 BIG-IP® Local Traffic Manager™ (LTM®) improves agility of service delivery by automating repetitive and manual steps involved in the provisioning of application services. For example, the solution can automatically provision application resources by first assembling a pool of virtual (or physical) machines running the desired application, adding these to a GaleForce-created pool, and then assigning the pool to a specific application service. The application service then launches a virtual instance indicating that the service is available to users.
The GaleForce Automation Adapter for the F5 BIG-IP LTM improves service delivery and offers benefits including:
Speed and agility of application deployment through automation of repetitive and complex tasks.
Capacity management with ability to add additional capacity to an already running application service in a deterministic, predictable manner.
Service enhancement by enablement of single-click and self-service provisioning of pre-designed and published templates.
“F5 is pleased that Gale Technologies has joined our Technology Alliance Program,” said Calvin Rowland, VP of Technology and ISV Alliances at F5 Networks. “Our technology alliance ecosystem provides opportunities for companies to collaborate on solutions that will better address the evolving needs of customers. We aim to work with leading companies in adjacent and complementary markets to extend the value of organizations’ application delivery environments. In line with this partnership, joint customers can be confident when deploying Gale Technologies and F5 solutions in concert.”
