Getting Started with BIG-IP Application Acceleration Manager (AAM) - Web Acceleration application acceleration manager application delivery big-ip aam performance security virtual edition 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.
