BIG-IP 8800 Application Switch
The Fastest 10 Gbps Application Delivery Platform Available
Industry Best Performance
Clustered multiprocessing enables the BIG-IP 8800 to deliver the highest levels
of Layer 7 and SSL throughput, SSL transactions per second and compression
performance over any other product in the market. The BIG-IP 8800 utilizes
symmetric multiprocessing across four processor cores. This technology allows
BIG-IP performance to scale to four times the level of a single processor system.
Key Benefits
Apart from the main processing cores, the 8800 includes a Packet Velocity ASIC
(PVA 10) that delivers high volume, line speed, and L4 and DoS processing in a
custom developed integrated circuit, enabling the BIG-IP 8800 to achieve industry
best L4 and L7 performance with integrated DoS attack protection.
Industry-best application performance
(per second):
-10 Gbps of Layer 4
-8 Gbps of Layer 7
-6 Gbps of SSL
-6 Gbps of Compression
-48,000 SSL TPS
Scalability to Support Data Center Consolidation
The BIG-IP 8800 Application Switch outperforms every other product on the
market, supporting 10 Gbps of traffic throughput and providing a flexible
platform that can scale to meet next-generation data center design.
Connection Flexibility – 10-Gigabit
fiber connections support the latest
generation of high performance switches
and routers, providing up to 10 Gbps of
traffic flow.
Best-In-Market SSL Processing
The BIG-IP 8800 includes SSL hardware acceleration to offload costly SSL
encryption. By accelerating key exchange and bulk encryption, the platform
provides best-in-market SSL performance capable of scaling up to 6 Gbps
throughput and over 48,000 TPS.
Device Consolidation – Consolidates
multiple devices in high-traffic networks
to a single pair of devices for easier
management and better cost efficiency.
Maximum SSL & Compression Processing
– Delivers the highest levels of SSL and
compression performance available on
the market today.
Future Proofs the Network – All Gigabit
architecture with Gigabit Copper Ethernet,
Gigabit Fiber Ethernet, and 10-Gigabit
Fiber Ethernet prepares your network
for the future, handling the increasing
demand for applications while leveraging
the ever increasing power of servers.
Offloads Server Processing of Compression
F5’s optional HTTP Compression license enables you to cost effectively offload
traffic compression processing from your servers. This greatly improves page
load times and reduces bandwidth utilization while scaling up to 6 Gbps
throughtput. The 8800 platform’s new compression hardware delivers software
level compression ratios but at blazing throughput levels that only dedicated
hardware can achieve.
10-Gigabit Ethernet Connections
A new type of fiber connection (XFP 10 Gbps Optical) for networks supports a
full 10 Gigabit of duplex traffic over a single interface.
Reduced Cost of Ownership
Hot-swappable components reduce downtime and lower TCO with hotswappable fans and an accessible compact flash and hard drive. Remote
management, multi-boot support, USB support, and simplified installation with
superior management capabilities improve availability.
Integrated Architecture
At the heart of the BIG-IP 8800 is the TMOS architecture, an intelligent, modular,
and scalable foundation for quickly adapting to future business challenges and
streamlining management tasks. TMOS enhances every function riding on top
of the BIG-IP 8800, making it easy to upgrade with software add-on modules to
meet your diverse and evolving distributed application goals.
TMOS Architecture Performance Breakthrough
Industry-first symmetric multi-processor, multi-core support allows the clustering
of processors so that workload can be spread evenly among them. This improves
performance across all functions (TPS, iRules, monitors, SSL, Compression, etc.)
through the dynamic sharing of processors while evenly distributing workloads
in real-time.
