Collaboration with Bluelock provides DevCentral with simplified lifecycle migration from development, to test, to production
Application Delivery Networking (ADN) firm F5 Networks has migrated its global online community, DevCentral, to Infrastructure-as-a-Service company Bluelock’s public cloud environment.
DevCentral now runs F5 cloud-enabled ADN applications in multiple Bluelock Virtual Datacenters hosted in the public cloud, while adhering to IT best practices for scale, control and security.
F5 Networks Product Management senior director Jeff Browning said,"With our move to Bluelock’s public cloud environment, we’ve increased DevOps agility, achieving faster, more frequent application updates that optimize development cycles."
Collaboration with Bluelock provides DevCentral with simplified lifecycle migration from development, to test, to production, resulting in frequent and lower risk upgrades. It also reduces complexity without relying on traditional replication schemes required for disaster recovery and high availability.
The migration to a Bluelock’s public cloud environment will also provides DevCentral with clear visibility across infrastructure, platforms and applications to provide edge-to-core troubleshooting, performance analysis.
It also offers closer workgroup collaboration enabling DevOps through a common set of virtual data centre tools and services shared between operations and development teams.
ZK Research principal analyst Zeus Kerravala said, "By migrating DevCentral to a Bluelock cloud environment, F5 has further increased the value of DevCentral by ensuring customers are always working with the latest versions of F5’s products and have access to all of F5’s capabilities."
