F5 Networks, a global provider of multi-cloud application services, announced that it has completed the acquisition of NGINX, an open source provider of application delivery.
On March 11, 2019, F5 announced that it had entered into an agreement to acquire NGINX.
The combined company will enable multi-cloud application services across all environments, providing the ease-of-use and flexibility developers require while also delivering the scale, security, reliability and enterprise readiness network operations teams demand.
In a blog post, NGINX senior vice president and general manager Gus Robertson outlined a list of reassurances for the company’s customers:
F5 president, CEO and director François Locoh-Donou wrote in a blog post for F5 that “ no one has stepped up to serve customers with enterprise-grade services for all applications, traditional and modern, wherever they are built or deployed. Until now.
“F5 + NGINX is a powerful combination that can bridge this divide. We believe every organisation can benefit from the agility and flexibility enabled by modern technologies, without compromising on the time-tested fundamentals of security, manageability, and reliability.”
