F5 said that it has achieved Oracle validated integration for BIG-IP LTM and WebAccelerator with Oracle’s E-Business Suite 12.0, PeopleSoft Enterprise 9.0, and Siebel CRM 8.0. F5/Oracle product integrations have been tested and validated as functionally and technically sound; are integrated with Oracle Applications in a standards-based way; and that the integrations operate and perform as documented.
The validations completed through the AIAP initiative build on its existing portfolio of offerings for Oracle applications that help Oracle customers optimise their application infrastructures for better productivity, and return on investment, the company claims.

The BIG-IP WebAccelerator integration enhances web content delivery by ensuring efficient use of bandwidth and preventing repetitive or duplicate data from being served to users.

This can help reduce risk, improve system implementation cycles, and provide for smoother upgrades and simpler maintenance.”
