F5 Networks Accelerates SAP Applications at BAT

F5 Networks announces that British American Tobacco (BAT) has chosen F5 acceleration solutions to provide a stable and reliable network that supports a global SAP application portal. Implementation was aided through BAT's use of the F5 Application Ready Network for SAP, which provides tested and documented best practices and guidance for optimising SAP applications with F5 BIG-IP solutions.

An established user of SAP solutions, BAT set out to create a global SAP application portal to help reduce application delivery and maintenance costs while maintaining operational efficiencies. Before launching two SAP human resource applications on the new portal, BAT wanted to make sure that its network infrastructure would be able to deliver the high performance users expect.

BAT is rolling out the F5 BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager (LTM) solution with WebAccelerator module to provide consistently high performance for BAT's 12,000 SAP users around the world. The implementation is supported by network security partner ITC.
