IT Infrastructure refers to the computerized networks, intelligent terminals, and accompanying applications and services people use to access, create, disseminate, and utilize digital information; the equipment, software, services, and products used in storing, processing, transmitting, and displaying all forms of information.
The network has become the central foundation of many IT operations. The IT infrastructure investment not only supports internal employee communications but also is the very linkage that drives ongoing revenue and growth. IDC found that customers were able to reduce IT costs, improve IT staff efficiency, increase availability for users, and trim time to market with new revenue-generating opportunities.

Cloud computing and the "bring your own device" (BYOD) trend will impact the design of future datacenters and their supporting networks. To attain the kind of business agility that companies now demand, network infrastructure needs to provide the flexibility required by cloud application workloads and the changing traffic patterns fostered by BYOD. To make networks more agile, new approaches to network implementation need to be enabled. As these trends continue, application delivery controllers (ADCs) will be critical elements in the new network infrastructure. This Technology Spotlight examines these trends and the role that F5 Networks' integrated scalable platform plays in this strategic market.
Information technology is at a crucial turning point. Enterprise IT departments are under constant pressure to meet user and application demands, aware that cloud deployments offer an easier and faster alternative but often pinned down by legacy deployment models.
