Blue Medora, a leading innovator in enterprise cloud and data center management, today announced the release of the VMware vRealize Orchestrator Plug-In for F5 BIG-IP™.

Working together, F5 Networks and Blue Medora simplify and automate the process of provisioning BIG-IP Software-Defined Application Services™. In addition, organizations can seamlessly provision BIG-IP services as part of the natural workflow of provisioning applications and networks with NSX.

The BIG-IP® system from F5 Networks helps secure and improve the reliability of applications in the cloud, data centers, and software-defined networking environments. The vRealize Orchestrator (vRO) Plug-In for F5 BIG-IP is part of Blue Medora’s VMware portfolio that consolidates IT management across VMware vRealize to optimize health, reduce risk and increase efficiency.

“By integrating vRealize Orchestrator with F5 BIG-IP, IT administrators are accelerating the application deployment process and decreasing deployment time from days to minutes,” said Mike Kelly, CTO at Blue Medora. “With the new Blue Medora vRO extension, administrators have full control of BIG-IP objects and commands through the well-established iControl® API. Easy-to-use vRO workflows, provided out-of-the-box, standardize and streamline application deployment.”

“Combined development work between Blue Medora and F5 continues to pay dividends for shared customers,” said Calvin Rowland, senior vice president of Business Development at F5 Networks. “Collaboration with industry leaders like Blue Medora in our partner ecosystem helps ensure that integrations and plug-ins are designed to optimize joint deployments. With today’s announcement, vRO and BIG-IP provide an agile services framework to support SDN technologies.”

The vRealize Orchestrator Plug-In for F5 BIG-IP is immediately available from Blue Medora and resellers. Blue Medora and F5 Networks will host a webinar on June 29th to demonstrate the benefits of VMware vRealize Orchestrator Plug-In for F5 BIG-IP.
