BIG-IP ® Hardware Datasheet BIG-IP 8800 Platform Series BIG-IP 8800 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.
