F5 BIG-IP 4000 series Application Delivery Controller platforms 4000s


F5 BIG-IPApplication Delivery Controller (ADC) platforms can manage even the heaviest traffic loads at both layer 4 and layer 7. By merging high-performance switching fabric, specialized hardware, and advanced software, F5 provides the exibility to make in-depth application decisions without introducing bottlenecks.


With the high performance you get from BIG-IP platforms, you can consolidate devices— saving management costs, electricity, space, and cooling—and still have room to grow. 

2.benefits& advantages

Consolidate your infrastructure with purpose-built hardware

BIG-IP hardware platforms are designed speci cally for application delivery performance and scalability. One device can be configured for server load balancing, global data center load balancing, DNS services, web application rewall, access management, web performance optimization, and WAN optimization. 

Offload application servers

BIG-IP platforms feature high-performance SSL and compression hardware, as well as advanced connection management, so that you can remove processing-intensive tasks from application servers, consolidate devices, and use these resources more ef ciently. 

Secure your network

Instantly add layer 3–7 protection with ICSA Certi ed BIG-IP platforms that provide default deny security, a full packet lter engine that limits access in a granular way, and an industry- leading web application rewall. 

Reduce your operating costs

Spend less time on con guration, upgrades, and maintenance with the simple-to-manage BIG-IP hardware, featuring out-of-band management, front-panel management, warm upgrades, remote boot, and USB support. Lower power and cooling costs in your data center with 80 Plus Gold and Platinum certi ed high-effciency power supplies.

Maximize uptime

Ensure your critical infrastructure is built on reliable hardware with hot-swappable components, redundant power supplies, redundant fans, compact ash, multi-boot support, and always-on management. Appliances can be deployed in traditional active/standby configuration or horizontal clusters (active/active) to achieve high availability and application-level failover.
