Rackspace is honored to be named a winner of the 2012 F5 Agility Award. The annual awards, given to customers and partners of F5 Networks, recognize creativity, value and innovation with F5 application delivery solutions. Rackspace is one of three companies to take home an Agility Award this year.

Rackspace received a 2012 F5 Agility Award in the customer segment. F5 highlighted our use of its solutions in the RackConnect[1]™ hybrid hosting platform. RackConnect allows customers to receive the performance and security of traditional hosting while enabling customers to leverage the flexibility and elasticity of the cloud when needed. RackConnect leverages F5 BIG-IP LTM (Local Traffic Manager) and iControl functionality, which helped Rackspace reduce the development time of RackConnect to three months.

RackConnect has become a true differentiator for Rackspace in the market. And thanks to F5’s platform and its flexibility, Rackspace has created a user experience that is unique and allows our customers to build new and innovative applications.

Thank you to F5 for recognizing the work we do with RackConnect. And congratulations to the other 2012 F5 Agility Award winners: MLB Network and Future Com Ltd.
