Unified Orchestration, Dynamic Provisioning
BIG-IQ orchestrates the deployment of BIG-IP devices across traditional and cloud infrastructures. BIG-IQ’s cloud technology allows workloads to be scaled automatically between and within clouds. The product’s multi-tenant design utilizes role-based access control to allow tenants simple self-service application deployment, easy application health monitoring and dynamic provisioning in VMware, Amazon and OpenStack cloud environments. All BIG-IQ data and functions are accessible through a simple and innovative GUI or through a comprehensive set of RESTful APIs.
F5 is the first vendor to offer API-level integration with VMware NSX to unify L2–3 storage, server, and networking services with L4–7 application services.
