Infrastructure VAD Arrow ECS offers Managed Service Providers (MSPs) authorised distribution of F5 Networks cloud services following the registration to F5's Cloud Licensing Programme (CLP). The programme is accessible and offered in 26 EMEA countries, through Arrow ECS offices in Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Luxembourg, Morocco, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom. The F5 Cloud Licensing Programme comprises the virtual versions of the F5 Big-IP appliances and their Good-Better-Best (GBB) simplified licensing model based on which MSPs can offer their customers complete cloud solutions. MSPs who are providing their customers with As-You-Use Service models can now enjoy F5 solutions in the same manner. This means they no longer need to make upfront capital investments on behalf of their clients. They may either select those services required by their business model or utilise the entire F5 Cloud offering. With Bring-Your-Own Licence and special volume conditions (volume licensing subscription), the programme offers flexibility. An app-centric strategy helps organisations maintain control over applications in the cloud. By extending the same availability, performance, and security services across environments – on-premise, public cloud, private cloud, or a mix (hybrid) – organisations can be confident their apps will provide the same user experience wherever they're deployed. The same policies that govern applications in the data centre can be applied in the cloud. The F5 Cloud Licencing Programme is now available via ArrowSphere, Arrow's Cloud marketplace. ArrowSphere allows MSPs to create their own cloud services or to re-sell cloud services by leading vendors such as F5.
"We are excited to bring F5 Networks' Cloud Licensing Programme to Europe", said Steve Robinson, vice president for Arrow's global cloud business. "Arrow brings value-added cloud services on the ArrowSphere platform to channel partners with F5 solutions for traditional Value-Added Resellers and Managed Service Providers."
"I'm happy to see how Arrow embraces F5's Cloud Licensing Programme in ArrowSphere", said Jaak Cuppens, Channel Sales Cloud and MSP EMEA. "As such adding a new consumption model for EMEA cloud partners and subsequent extend the customer experience with F5 solutions on their journey to app-centric cloud strategy."
