Solutions built on BIG-IP platform platform are load balancers. And they're full proxies that give visibility into, and the power to control - inspect and encrypt or decrypt - all the traffic that passes through your network.
One of BIG-IP core functions is load balancing, which entails managing network traffic such that no one server becomes overwhelmed while others idle. This improves application performance and availability.
BIG IP is able to shift key tasks away from the server to its own processor in order to improve performance. This can reduce the number of servers in a typical datacenter and speed up the performance of the remaining servers.
BIG-IP identifies and stops most DDoS attacks before they reach the datacenter. With hardware-based Dos protections, BIG-IP detects DDoS attacks and routes the connections away from critical servers, or rejects them outright.
