F5 supports training startup

Application traffic management company F5 is now offering certification training through its Wellington-based distributor Observatory Crest.

Sydney-based Daniel Storey, previously network consultant for F5, left the company last year to form his own independent training company — Red Education.

Storey’s company is F5’s first authorised training centre in Asia-Pacific. Courses offered by Red Education are offered through F5 distributors to resellers and technical end-users.

“We’ll be scheduling courses for Auckland and Wellington, plus any other region where there’s a requirement. F5’s growth in New Zealand has been immense and now requires a lot more attention,” he says.

At this stage F5’s only local distributor is Observatory Crest.

However, Martin Mooney, F5 New Zealand country manager, says his company is currently in discussions with Australian distributor Firewall Systems.

“Observatory Crest certainly has the ability to offer these courses to resellers. If and when we sign a second distributor both will have that option,” he says.

Firewall Systems is in the process of opening shop in New Zealand.
