Accelerate the pace of business

By managing application services rather than individual devices and objects, BIG-IP LTM gives you greater visibility and control over application delivery—and helps you deploy in hours rather than weeks. This application-centric approach aligns the network with your applications and adapts application delivery to business needs. Plus, you can build for the future knowing that BIG-IP LTM is IPv6-compliant and supports Google’s SPDY protocol.

  • BIG-IP LTM includes F5 iApps Templates, which not only speed deployment of applications, but let you monitor them in real time.

Gain peace of mind

The Internet is an increasingly dangerous place. You need to guard your network against a growing number of attacks and secure customer data without hindering authorized access. BIG-IP LTM makes it easy to enhance performance by offloading SSL encryption and protecting against potentially crippling DDoS attacks. And if you need to add application security and access policies, BIG-IP LTM optional modules enhance your infrastructure efficiently and effectively. 

Deliver performance

If your applications don’t perform well or consistently, your customers will know—and quickly spread the word to others. With SSL acceleration and TCP optimization built in, BIG-IP LTM maximizes your existing infrastructure and increases server capacity. F5 TCP Express and F5 OneConnect help improve performance and reduce bandwidth costs. And fast connections and easy scalability mean you can manage even the heaviest traffic loads at both Layer 4 and Layer 7.

Reduce downtime

With damages calculated in terms of lost revenue and reputation, keeping applications consistently available is vital to your organization’s health. BIG-IP LTM protects applications by removing single points of failure, giving you fine-grained bandwidth control and optimizing your most important applications. And since BIG-IP LTM tracks the dynamic performance levels of servers in a group, it ensures that all sites are not just always on—but are more scalable and easier to manage than ever.

Real-time analysis

F5 Analytics gives IT staff a clear view into the health of the network and the application. 

  • Uptime, response time, and even usage spikes are available at a glance.
  • Drill-down options enable operators to get to the source of application performance problems quickly.

Load balancing

BIG-IP LTM intelligently adapts to the changing demands of your applications and ensures their consistent availability, even when servers fail.

  • Active application health monitoring alerts you when performance is threatened.
  • Transaction assurance retries connections to different servers in the event of a failure.

SSL acceleration and offload

BIG-IP LTM uses specialized hardware to offload SSL encryption from data center servers. By accelerating encryption and freeing up server resources, BIG-IP LTM improves application performance.

Easy protocol implementation

BIG-IP LTM acts as a full proxy, sitting between servers and users, which makes implementing new protocols as easy as flipping a switch.

  • SPDY: Turn on SPDY support and choose which servers will support it.
  • IPv6: Turn on IPv6 support to service IPv6 clients with IPv6 while still servicing IPv4 requests with IPv4. 

Protocol optimization

Improve application performance while reducing network traffic.

  • OneConnect: Increase server capacity by up to 60 percent.
  • F5 Fast Cache: Prevent servers from having to handle requests for identical content.
  • TCP connection queuing: Hold overload connections in a queue.
  • Compression: Use fewer bytes to transmit data. 

Strong security

BIG-IP LTM protects your network.

  • DDoS protection: Detect DDoS attacks and route the connections away from critical servers—or reject them outright.
  • Data center firewall: As a native, high-performance firewall solution, BIG-IP LTM protects your entire infrastructure and scales to perform under the most demanding conditions. 

Custom control

The F5 iRules scripting language lets you intercept, parse, modify, and route application traffic based on your specific business needs.

  • The iRules Wiki on F5 DevCentral offers many real-world iRules to help you quickly solve pressing problems.

ScaleN solution

BIG-IP LTM avoids primary/secondary configuration inefficiency, breaking out of the N+1 model.

  • Eliminate the tight coupling between primary and standby components, allowing the primary to fail over to any available and appropriately configured component. 

Industry-leading performance

BIG-IP LTM delivers unparalleled performance and scalability, including:

  • Max. L4 connections per second: 1.4 million
  • Max. L7 requests per second: 3.2 million
  • Max. L4 throughput: 36 Gbps
