Supports the Largest Sites and Heaviest Load
BIG-IP platforms feature extreme capacity for handling the heaviest traffic loads at both
Layer 4 and Layer 7. F5 solutions outpace every other product on the market in terms of
key performance metrics in Layer 4, Layer 7, SSL processing, and HTTP compression – all
running concurrently. These powerful platforms provide superior scalability for making
in-depth Layer 7 decisions with extensive server and application acceleration capabilities
for a high performance and unified network device.
Ground-Breaking Performance
F5 delivers the industry’s fastest unified application delivery networking solution with an
architecture that merges a high performance switching fabric with individual hardware
optimizers. This gives you real-world performance at network speeds, enabling the
successful and secure delivery of your applications.
Up to a 50% Increase in Layer 7 Performance
BIG-IP, with its TMOS architecture, delivers a unique set of optimization techniques to
boost application performance across all platforms. Isolating client-side from server-side
flows independently optimizes communication for each connecting device, translating
communications between systems for greater infrastructure scalability and outstanding
application performance.
Integrated Hardware Compression Offloads Server
F5’s 8800, 8400, 6800, and 6400 platforms offer an optional HTTP Compression ASIC
that enables organizations to cost effectively offload compression processing to the
network while increasing server capacity. By migrating compression onto the network,
administrators can realize up to a 20% improvement in server capacity, application
performance (scales up to 6 Gbps), and application response times for user.
Heightened Security and Protection of Sensitive Content
The 6800 and 6400 BIG-IP platforms deliver unmatched scalability for FIPS processing to
meet regulatory requirements specified in the FIPS 140-2 Level 2 and HIPAA standards.
F5 enhances SSL security using hardware to encrypt and decrypt both the keys and data,
leading the market in SSL TPS and bulk encryption. All other platforms offer best-in-market
SSL TPS and bulk encryption via an optional hardware optimize.

Easy to Manage for Reduced Cost of Ownership
Multi-boot support, warm upgrades, lights-out management, remote boot, superior system
instrumentation, hard drive, and USB support reduces downtime, lowers TCO, and provides
superior reliability for platform longevity. Selected platforms also offer hot-swappable
components and redundant power supply and fans.

Supports the Largest Sites and Heaviest Load
BIG-IP platforms feature extreme capacity for handling the heaviest traffic loads at both
Layer 4 and Layer 7. F5 solutions outpace every other product on the market in terms of
key performance metrics in Layer 4, Layer 7, SSL processing, and HTTP compression – all
running concurrently. These powerful platforms provide superior scalability for making
in-depth Layer 7 decisions with extensive server and application acceleration capabilities
for a high performance and unified network device.
Ground-Breaking Performance
F5 delivers the industry’s fastest unified application delivery networking solution with an
architecture that merges a high performance switching fabric with individual hardware
optimizers. This gives you real-world performance at network speeds, enabling the
successful and secure delivery of your applications.
Up to a 50% Increase in Layer 7 Performance
BIG-IP, with its TMOS architecture, delivers a unique set of optimization techniques to
boost application performance across all platforms. Isolating client-side from server-side
flows independently optimizes communication for each connecting device, translating
communications between systems for greater infrastructure scalability and outstanding
application performance.
Integrated Hardware Compression Offloads Server
F5’s 8800, 8400, 6800, and 6400 platforms offer an optional HTTP Compression ASIC
that enables organizations to cost effectively offload compression processing to the
network while increasing server capacity. By migrating compression onto the network,
administrators can realize up to a 20% improvement in server capacity, application
performance (scales up to 6 Gbps), and application response times for user.
Heightened Security and Protection of Sensitive Content
The 6800 and 6400 BIG-IP platforms deliver unmatched scalability for FIPS processing to
meet regulatory requirements specified in the FIPS 140-2 Level 2 and HIPAA standards.
F5 enhances SSL security using hardware to encrypt and decrypt both the keys and data,
leading the market in SSL TPS and bulk encryption. All other platforms offer best-in-market
SSL TPS and bulk encryption via an optional hardware optimize.

Easy to Manage for Reduced Cost of Ownership
Multi-boot support, warm upgrades, lights-out management, remote boot, superior system
instrumentation, hard drive, and USB support reduces downtime, lowers TCO, and provides
superior reliability for platform longevity. Selected platforms also offer hot-swappable
components and redundant power supply and fans.
