The brain of the F5 next-gen platform, BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager (LTM) software intelligently manages network traffic, so applications are always reliable, secure, and optimized.
No one likes a slow, unreliable application. BIG-IP LTM scales dramatically to meet traffic demands, improving load times and user experience. It also makes real-time protocol and traffic-management decisions based on application and server conditions and puts control in your hands with rule customization and programmability.
You want to know how your applications and network are performing for users at all times. BIG-IP LTM puts data logging and analysis, real-time application health monitoring, and detailed F5 Analytics at your fingertips to help you maintain and improve application performance.
BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager sits between clients and hosts, managing traffic into and out of a data center by way of a pre-configured virtual server that points to a cluster. This gives control over network traffic; selecting the best host destination based on server performance, security, and availability. LTM can be deployed across the range of F5 Appliances running BIG-IP Software.
Both the F5 rSeries family of appliances and the VELOS chassis are purpose-built, powerful hardware that F5 BIG-IP software runs on.
BIG-IP VEs have the same features as those that run on F5 hardware—and you can deploy them on any hypervisor or select cloud provider.
Offloads SSL encryption from data center servers and frees resources to boost app performance.
See response time and traffic surges. Quickly get to the source of app performance issues.
Provides clustering, virtualization, and on-demand scaling.
Detects DDoS attacks and mitigates over 100 vectors to keep apps online.
Maintain application availability by influencing traffic in real-time and understanding applications, protocols, and networks.
Inspect, manage and report on all app traffic entering and exiting your network, giving you granular control over traffic flows.
F5 Container Ingress Services (CIS) integrates with container orchestration environments to dynamically create L4/L7 services on F5 platforms with BIG-IP software, and load balance network traffic across the services.
In today's dynamic, application-centric marketplace, organizations are under more and more pressure to deliver the information, services, and experiences their customers expect—and to do it quickly, reliably, and securely. Key network and application functions, such as load balancing, encryption, acceleration, and security, can be provided via Application Delivery Controllers (ADC).
We can assess your needs and connect you with the right cloud provider, reseller, or F5 Sales Engineer.
