BIG-IP Hardware/Virtual Edition
Our platforms deliver unmatched power, dramatically improving Layer 4-7 traffic throughput and providing better application delivery. F5's TMOS architecture is at the heart of all BIG-IP platforms, efficiently isolating clients from the server-side flows to increase application performance and allow custom payload inspection and transformation capabilities with iRules.
With BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager (LTM) Virtual Edition (VE), you can take your Application Delivery Network virtual. You get the agility you need to create a mobile, scalable, and adaptable infrastructure for virtualized applications.
Like the physical BIG-IP LTM appliance, BIG-IP LTM VE is a full proxy between users and application servers, providing a layer of abstraction that secure, optimizes, and load balances application traffic.
