TMOS is the universal product platform shared by F5 BIG-IP products. No single competing technology can solve such a wide variety of application delivery problems over networks.
With its application control plane architecture, TMOS gives you intelligent control over the acceleration, security, and availability services your applications require. TMOS establishes a virtual, unified pool of highly scalable, resilient, and reusable services that can dynamically adapt to the changing conditions in data centers and virtual and cloud infrastructures.
F5 products built on TMOS offer unusual flexibility through an open API. Applications can instruct TMOS-based devices to control traffic flow and maximize performance using the iControl API. You can gain extremely granular control over any traffic going through F5 devices using iRules. And iApps functionality enables you to deploy and manage network service for each of your specific applications with unprecedented speed and accuracy.
TMOS can also help you virtualize and scale up or scale out on demand as your business needs change. Using ScaleN functionality, you can add or move application delivery workloads as easily as you add or move virtual server workloads to create true deployment flexibility.
