While it is important to understand the numerous features and benefits that F5's BIG-IP traffic management solutions bring to an organization, such as high availability, improving application performance, optimizing infrastructure, and providing unique application security, the goal of this paper is to explore a more fundamental business and technical problem plaguing today's organizations - and how BIG-IP solves it.

The Core Challenge: Today's networks are still not intelligent and flexible enough

Application delivery challenges are costing organizations millions of dollars

The increasing number of diverse applications is difficult to manage

The application fire drill

IT organizations need a better way to optimize application delivery, bring together needed functions, and address the frequent "application fire drills" without costly application coding, incurring major infrastructure cost, and adding significant management overhead through point and partially consolidated systems.

The BIG-IP version 9 is a next generation traffic management product from F5. Version 9 was designed to solve the key challenges faced by businesses today: the secure and optimized delivery of their applications. The fundamental difference between F5's approach and every other product on the market today is F5's design focus. F5's focus was to design a solution that not only offered powerful application traffic management functionality, but a solution that could effectively broker and address the changing demands of networks and applications and the users accessing them.
