Application Delivery Networking devices, modules, and virtualized platforms from F5 maximize the dynamic capabilities of next generation computing architectures powered by PureSystems.
Benefits of F5 products for PureSystems
How It Works
Make your network a more agile infrastructure for application delivery. Applications running across networks encounter a wide range of performance, security, and availability challenges that can be mitigated to improve application delivery, increase control, and optimize resources. The F5 BIG-IP product family is a system of hardware, software, and virtualized application delivery functions that enhance the quality of service delivered by PureSystems and provide a high-availability environment for enterprise-class applications such as IBM WebSphere Application Server. The advantages of deploying both hardware and virtual editions of BIG-IP products with PureSystems include:
Further enhance your solution with software modules providing single sign-on capability, application firewalls, web acceleration, and WAN optimization. Hardware, virtual editions, and software work in tandem to deliver a unified, high-availability platform for application delivery, optimization, and control in PureSystems environments.
BIG-IP system hardware and software work in tandem to create a single, unified point of control for application delivery, high-availability, and optimization of PureSystems environments.
