Cloud computing and the "bring your own device" (BYOD) trend will impact the design of future datacenters and their supporting networks.

This Technology Spotlight examines these trends and the role that F5 Networks' integrated scalable platform plays in this strategic market.

The world’s largest organizations are adopting cloudbased infrastructure and services at a dizzying pace. Software as a service (SaaS) offerings such as Salesforce.com and Microsoft Office 365 are among the more popular cloud-based services. When moving services to the cloud, data centers are no longer local, so the end user experience can suffer. A poor or congested Internet connection between the user and the cloud service will mean sluggish application delivery that puts a damper on user productivity and ultimately threatens application usage.
