F5 Networks Expands Application Delivery With NGINX Acquisition

At the core of the Nginx product portfolio is a robust open-source project and community. F5 has pledged that it will continue to support Nginx’s open-source efforts after the acquisition closes.

“They (Nginx) have a bunch of users that have a passion for, and a preference for open-source, and there are some subset of those users mostly moving into enterprise type solutions that are looking for enterprise level capability,”  Kara Sprague, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Application Services at F5 Networks said.
