BIG-IP 8400 Application Switch
Highest Performing 10 Gbps Application Delivery Solution
F5 delivers the BIG-IP 8400 platform, featuring best-in-market
throughput at an astounding 10 Gbps.
Key Benefits
Ultimate Throughput – Delivers the
industry’s ultimate traffic management
device, featuring best-in-market L4
throughput at an astounding 10 Gbps.
Connection Flexibility – A 10-Gigabit fiber
connection supports the latest generation
of high performance switches and
routers, providing up to 10 Gbps duplex
of traffic flow over a single connection.
Device Consolidation – Consolidates
multiple devices in high-traffic networks
to a single pair of devices for easier
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
Industry Best Performance
Packet Velocity ASIC 10 (PVA 10) delivers high volume line speed load
balancing performed in a custom developed integrated circuit, enabling the
BIG-IP 8400 to achieve industry best L4 performance. The BIG-IP 8400 also
delivers the highest levels of SSL and compression performance over any
other product in the market and includes integrated DoS attack protection.
Scalability to Support Data Center Consolidation
The BIG-IP 8400 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.
Maximum SSL Processing
The BIG-IP 8400 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 2.5 Gbps
and over 22,000 TPS.
Offloads Server Processing of Compression
F5’s optional HTTP Compression ASIC enables you to cost effectively
offload traffic compression processing from your servers. See up to a 5x
improvement in page load times and up to an 80% reduction in bandwidth
utilization, while scaling up to 2 Gbps.
10-Gigabit Ethernet Connections
A new type of fiber connection for networks provides up to 10 Gigabit
duplex of traffic flow over a single point.
Reduced Cost of Ownership
Hot-swappable components reduce downtime and lowers TCO with hotswappable fans and power, and accessible compact flash and hard drive.
Remote management, multi-boot support, and simplified installation with
superior management capabilities improve availability.
Integrated Architecture
At the heart of the BIG-IP 8400 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 8400, making it easy to upgrade with
software add-on modules to meet your diverse and evolving distributed
application goals.
