This course is intended to help you get started using BIG-IP Application Acceleration Manager (AAM). You’ll learn about the need for accelerating web application delivery, especially in light of increasing demand for higher performing mobile services. The course introduces you to some of the more common acceleration methods, then focuses on caching and image optimization. You’ll configure a web acceleration profile to cache content on the BIG-IP system, bringing that content closer to the client, and offloading work from your application servers. And you’ll deploy a web acceleration policy with rules that optimize JPEG images through compression, resampling, and excess header removal, reducing the size of the response to the client and, more importantly, the time it takes to get there.
This course is intended to help you get started using the Symmetric Optimization feature of BIG-IP Application Acceleration Manager (AAM) so that you can move large amounts of data across a WAN. You’ll learn about the various services that Symmetric Optimization provides, as well as how to apply those services.
The course introduces you to the optimization Services Chain which includes compression and decompression, application optimization and data deduplication, among others. You will understand what configuration objects are necessary to carry out Symmetric Optimization, and how to configure those objects on both sides of the WAN. (Run time is approximately 18 minutes).
