F5 gear bought to optimize WAN also helps with VDI


Distribution Management Inc. bought F5’s Big-IP Gateway to handle WAN optimization, but it turns out the platform solved a string of problems that cropped up when the company deployed VMware virtual desktop infrastructure, too.

It wound up trialing F5’s Big-IP Gateway for a month or so, then buying, configuring and putting it into test mode for the first few months of last year.
