BIG-IP iSeries Platform

BIG-IP iSeries appliances deliver application services with quick and easy programmability, multi-vendor service orchestration, software-defined hardware, and line-rate performance.

Highly programmable, cloud-ready hardware options from F5.

The BIG-IP iSeries platform features TurboFlex optimization technology that offloads specialized functions from the general CPU, resulting in up to twice the price/performance of our leading competitors. TurboFlex allows you to choose from different performance profiles, and switch to new ones as your business needs change. Best of all, software updates enable additional optimizations and profiles in the future.
